We have one of the world’s largest teams of experts dedicated to making our living and working environments quieter and more comfortable.


We have around 100 highly experienced acousticians in offices around the world utilising state-of-the-art acoustical hardware and modelling software. And collectively they provide noise and vibration services for architects, planners, developers and engineers.


We can look at all aspects of your project and work with you through its life-cycle. Whether during the initial planning stage to identify and mitigate constraints, providing support throughout the planning process, through to the building design, construction and finally operation.


So what do we actually do?

  • Noise and vibration for planning
  • Noise and vibration impact assessments
  • Architectural acoustics
