Environmental Noise and Vibration

In search of Peace and Quiet...

Valcoustics provides noise & vibration assessments for the impact from road, rail and air transportation as well as industrial sources on adjacent noise-sensitive land uses --- both existing and proposed. The process includes selection and analysis of mitigation measures such as sound barriers, architectural elements, operational techniques and vibration isolation concepts. Sound exposures are quantified by predictions using state of the art computer and mathematical modelling and/or by field measurements. Vibration exposures are usually determined by measurement.

Some of the services we offer in this area are:
  • Noise and vibration impact and assessment studies for land use approval
  • Noise Impact Studies for renewable energy projects
  • Noise Studies for EA’s and Class EA’s 
  • Acoustic audits
  • Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) Applications for noise and vibration under the Ontario Environmental Protection Act
