Noise from Entertainment Premises

Consideration of noise is an important aspect for developers and operators of entertainment premises such as public houses, night clubs and restaurants.

Noise assessments for these developments typically include matters such as music noise breakout, noise from building services plant (e.g. kitchen extract fans, coldroom condensers, etc.) as well as customer noise from external smoking areas, dispersion at closing time and from associated activities such as deliveries and customer vehicles.

At ACA Acoustics we are highly experienced in assessing noise from entertainment venues, including from very sensitive sites such as night clubs with flats directly above and conversions of listed barns to new wedding venues in very quiet countryside locations.

We have also worked on multi-use buildings incorporating residential apartments or hotel bedrooms above bars and nightclub areas. These types of developments require a very high level of experience in acoustic design to achieve particularly stringent noise criteria. Assessments have been carried out for new planning applications, licensing renewals or to investigate existing complaints.

We provide a high quality service, straight-forward advice, fast turn-around and very competitive prices.  To discuss your project in detail call us on 0207 554 8567 or email to
