Environmental Noise & Vibration Studies for Land Use Planning & Industrial Permitting

Valcoustics provides vibration & noise assessments and measurement 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 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
