Details of our most common services are shown below, however this list is not exhaustive and if your requirement is not listed then please contact us to discuss your particular project.


During the planning process for new residential developments the Local Authority may require a noise and vibration impact assessment to be submitted in support of the application.  Commonly referred to as PPG24 Assessments, ACA Acoustics has worked on applications from large-scale mixed-use developments to single flat conversions.

Where an application for planning permission is submitted for new building services equipment the Local Authority will normally request that an assessment of noise to nearby noise-sensitive properties is carried out.  ACA Acoustics will carry out all required surveys, assessments and provide a detailed specification for noise and vibration control measures where necessary.

Acoustic design of buildings is an important consideration to ensure that new developments achieve the client's requirements.  Getting the acoustic design wrong can result in either expensive over-design, costly remedial treatments or buildings that are not fit-for-purpose.  ACA Acoustics has extensive experience in architectural acoustic design over a wide variety of demanding and sensitive projects.

Measurement and assessment of vibration is a requirement for many new noise-sensitive developments, particularly proposed new residential sites located adjacent to railway lines.  ACA Acoustics are experienced in undertaking assessments of vibration and providing recommendations for suitable vibration isolation measures.

ACA Acoustics has experience in assessing occupational noise in a diverse range of workplaces.  Our approach considers the specific needs of your business and provides a solution tailored to your circumstances with the minimum disruption to your business.

Whether it is to determine existing ambient noise levels, internal commissioning surveys within a new development or to investigate noise complaints, noise surveys are central to almost all work undertaken by ACA Acoustics.  All surveys are carried out by highly experienced acoustic consultants using the latest state-of-the-art UKAS calibrated monitoring equipment.

Consideration of noise is an important aspect for developers and operators of entertainment premises such as public houses, night clubs and restaurants.  At ACA Acoustics we are highly experienced in assessing noise from entertainment venues, including from very sensitive sites such as night clubs with flats above and conversions of listed barns to new wedding venues in very quiet rural locations.
