Gentle tones

Noise pollution is a growing problem. To deal with it effectively requires a concept that analyzes the immission situation in its specific, complex context – one that contributes to securing the location of your company and its development.

This includes coordination of the measures to reduce noise emissions and immissions to meet the sector-specific conditions of your company and your investment plan.

And what works for noise control measures at companies also works in urban land-use planning, transport infrastructure planning, noise control and prevention on streets and, and, and ...

Noise immission control

Noise immission control services are becoming increasingly important as the population density in our cities and landscapes grows and people become more aware of the problems.

We take measurements and perform forecast calculations to examine the noise situation in residential areas and industrial parks. Our services allow cities, municipalities and private investors to consider organizational and structural measures to protect people and the environment from noise in the earliest stages of planning and to technically and economically optimize noise control measures.

Advanced measuring instruments and comprehensive calculation programs allow us to survey the situation in detail and simulate a wide range of planning options. The results are visualized so that they are easy to understand.

 

We are specialists in the following areas:

  • Technical noise immission control measures for transport infrastructure planning of streets and rail routes, waterways and airports
  • Urban land-use planning of residential areas and commercial and industrial parks
  • Building permit planning for the implementation of commercial enterprises, leisure and sports facilities, restaurants and shopping centers
  • Noise reduction planning for acoustic renovation of commercial enterprises

Evaluation of industrial sites

Evaluation of industrial sites

Evaluation of industrial sites

Commercial or industrial companies with settlement plans generally assess the available locations based on good transportation links, short transportation routes or flexible expansion possibilities.

If a company is planning to set up production areas with three-shift operations, is going to use noisy technical equipment or utilizes a large number of vehicles, then it is absolutely essential to thoroughly examine the acoustical boundary conditions prior to making a decision in favor of a site.

Are there residential buildings near the site, or are there plans for such? Does the development plan have noise quotas? What do they mean? Are there any encumbrances that need to be considered?

We assess these constraints by visiting the site, viewing the development plans and coordinating with the competent authorities.
We clarify the stipulations outlined in the development plan regarding noise immission control.

Based on your information, we prepare an acoustic model of your operation at the planned site and make statements about the expected technical noise requirements of the authorities, operational constraints and future development possibilities.

In doing so, we help you to save time and avoid costly mistakes in your planning. We can also advise your planning team on how to optimize the acoustic design of your site. You should take advantages of these consulting services at a very early planning stage.

 

We are specialists in the following areas:

  • Assessment of a site’s acoustic suitability by viewing all required documentation and through coordination with the competent authorities – without naming the company on request
  • Complex acoustic forecast calculations which, if successful, can also be used to create the required expert reports as part of the approval process
  • Noise immission control as part of integrative planning of commercial and industrial sites
  • We are an officially recognized measurement center according to section 26 of the Federal Immission Control Act (Bundesimmissionsschutzgesetz) for noise emissions and immissions
