Thistlemoor Medical Practice – A New Build 3 Storey Medical Centre
NHS Manchester University approached us to assist with a project involving the installation of a new plant room and 4 no. ground source heat pumps.
Project Title: Noise Impact Assessment and Noise Control for a new plant room and fixed plant.
Project Value: £2m+
Project Brief: NHS Manchester University approached us to assist with a project involving the installation of a new plant room and 4 no. ground source heat pumps. We supported the project by providing a noise impact assessment in accordance with BS4142:2014+2019.
Firstly, we established the background sound levels at the closest affected receptors to the plant area to establish the baseline for the noise impact assessment. We then undertook a detailed analysis of the noise emissions from the plant equipment and assessed the extent of impact in accordance with BS4142:2014+A1:2019. This allowed us to supply a detailed technical report focusing on value engineered advice to ensure that noise emissions were well managed and evidencing compliance with the Local Planning Policy.
