improve your understanding of acoustics

We currently provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) sessions to both existing and prospective clients online via Teams. The purpose of these presentations is to offer a comprehensive overview of the role of noise and acoustics in both planning regulations and the design process. We believe that equipping planning consultants, architects, designers, and contractors with this understanding enables you to make well-informed decisions regarding when to involve an acoustic consultant and how to integrate noise and acoustic considerations into your project timelines.

The advantage of this approach lies in the early incorporation of noise and acoustics into the project, leading to significant cost and time savings. Our CPD sessions encompass a wide range of topics within the field of noise and acoustics and can be customized to address specific challenges encountered by organizations in their past projects. Feedback on our CPD sessions has been overwhelmingly positive, with participants finding them informative and practical for professionals working in various sectors including planning, architecture, construction, education, healthcare and environmental permitting.
