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