Our technical specialists provide guidance on acoustics, noise and vibration for a wide scope of projects ranging from city scale environments to detailed building or infrastructure elements.

Our goal is to create functional, comfortable indoor and outdoor environments which are compatible with their surroundings. We offer unique expertise and practical solutions, from planning through to construction, which balance potential environmental issues with the need for development.

How can we help?

Using state-of-the-art tools and equipment, SLR can assist our clients by modelling, predicting and verifying acoustical, noise and vibration performance . Our experts have worked on projects all over the world, providing services for:

  • Architectural acoustical design – building services noise and vibration control
  • Industrial facilities and machine vibration
  • Transportation noise and vibration impact assessments for road, rail, air, sea
  • Renewable energy and power generation acoustics
  • Underwater acoustics monitoring, modelling and assessments
  • Structural dynamics investigations and mitigation
  • Mining / quarrying noise and vibration
  • LNG facility acoustics
  • Aeroacoustics investigations and mitigation
  • Construction noise and vibration impact assessments
  • City noise mapping and land use compatibility
