NOVA Acoustics



We were instructed by William Saunders to support a planning application for 7no. new build industrial units in Barnsley.

Project Title: Planning permission stage Noise Impact Assessment to support the development of 7 no. New Build Industrial units. 

Project Value: £5m+

Project Brief: 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 feasibility assessment of the predicted noise emissions from the future tenants of the industrial units and assessed the extent of impact in accordance with BS4142:2014+A1:2019. This allowed us to supply a detailed technical report that assessed the viability of the development and provided guidance on good acoustic design and management of noise for the site once operational.
