Consturction / Demolition Environmental Services

Construction noise guidelines are intended to manage noise and vibration effects from construction projects.  These make proponents accountable for their environmental performance, by ensuring that construction noise is assessed, planned and managed in a risk-based manner within a framework to drive construction practices that minimise noise impacts on the community. This includes credible community engagement and transparent justification of proposed impact mitigation measures.

Acoustics Consultants Australia staff have significant experience in construction and demolition noise assessment. Our experience includes construction noise assessments in relation to small development applications for individual residences, to leading the noise and vibration scope of services and providing inputs required throughout the planning, design and construction phases of large and complex transport and infrastructure projects.
