Airport Noise Monitoring & Planning.
If not suitably controlled and accounted for, noise associated with airports and airfields can cause serious disturbance to neighbouring communities.
In addition to noise produced during flying operations, other major sources include ground testing of aircraft, engines, which often occurs at night. Also sometimes a problem is airport related traffic.
Helicopters and heliports pose particular environmental noise problems.
Acoustic Associates can provide a service to assist Planners concerned with development and Airport Authorities concerned with noise control, by conducting long term noise monitoring, producing aircraft noise contours with predictive computer software and make environmental impact assessments in support of planning applications for airfield development, or for residential development in the vicinity of an airfield.
