Building Design - Noise & Vibration

We provide sound and vibration design services for both new and retrofit construction projects as well as for remediation of problems within existing facilities. Whether there are specific performance criteria that need to be achieved or we develop design objectives based on an understanding of the desired results, our flexible approach ensures that aesthetics and functionality of your facility will not suffer as a result of the sound and vibration requirements. Our goal is to add value to every project.

Not only are we involved with the design process, our scope of services can extend from conceptual design right up to final commissioning testing to verify that all of the sound and vibration objectives have been achieved. As noise and vibration consultants, Valcoustics has a broad range of state-of-the-art instrumentation that allows us to complete the full gamut of sound and vibration field testing that may be required to verify performance. Anyone can perform tests and obtain results. However, it takes the expertise that Valcoustics staff has to properly interpret the results and to identify solutions to any issues that may arise.

As controlling sound and vibration is vital to multiple industries, we work closely with architects, electrical, mechanical and structural Engineers, and even with interior designers. Getting our vibration measurement services involved early in the design stages is key to properly coordinating the sound and vibration elements with the overall design of any facility be it residential, commercial, institutional or even industrial. With a history extending more than fifty years, there are not too many sound and vibration problems that we have not already solved.

Valcoustics helps make where we live, work, and play a quieter and more enjoyable place by providing cost effective vibration modelling services and solutions to noise and vibration challenges.

Some of the Building Noise and Vibration services we offer are:

Tarion Bulletin 19R Acoustical Design Services, Construction Review and Proof of Performance Testing
Acoustical privacy
Noise and Vibration control of mechanical and electrical equipment
Noise and Vibration complaint investigation and remediation
Proof of performance testing (NC/PNC/RC, ASTC, NIC, STI, RT60, etc.)

We bring noise abatement solutions to your commercial environment or residential development project, helping to provide a more harmonious daily experience.

Acoustic Consulting Services

Your acoustical solutions begin with consultation. Our acoustic consulting service presents various options and allows you to define your expectations regarding a solution.

Acoustic Testing Services

Once we know your expectations, the next step is acoustic testing. Comprehensive room analysis combined with our engineers’ vast knowledge base will ensure an accurate assessment of your environment’s acoustic condition.

Acoustical Design Services

With your environment’s trouble spots identified and your expectations clearly defined, our engineers produce an acoustical design, specifically tailored to your desired results.

Acoustic Engineering Services

Once the acoustical design is finalized and approved by you, Valcoustics will execute the design to correct industry standards. We strive for optimum results with your acoustic engineering solution.
