Our Approach

CSP Acoustics has been involved in a wide range of projects in these sectors – has assessed the impacts of proposed projects on existing noise sensitive neighbours as well as the impacts of existing transport and waste facilities on proposed housing and other noise sensitive developments. On occasions projects fall between sectors requiring coverage of waste processing, related transport and, perhaps, energy generation using an integrated approach to assessment and noise mitigation to help minimise impacts upon neighbors and ensure that operations can commence, or continue, using best practicable means of noise control.

Services we can provide as part of the Transport & Waste sector include...

Environment and Noise

Negotiations with Local Authorities are often required to establish the criteria for noise Impact Assessments, especially now that PAN 1/2011 gives each Local Authority the ability to set down its own criteria and standards. Projects that are proposed near to existing residential developments will only be approved if it can be shown that noise from a proposed facility will not give rise to loss of amenity, or nuisance, for the occupants of dwellings. CSPA acoustics has extensive experience of dealing with these issues and can be relied upon to work effectively with designers and developers to help secure planning permissions and optimise designs. More aspects of this service can be explored by looking at our Environment and Noise page.

Planning & Building Control Applications Support

For many projects compliance with Environmental Standards and Planning requirements can be critical to development viability either in relation to gaining the Planning Approval or compliance with Planning Conditions within an existing Planning Approval, or in challenging a Local Authority decision by Appeal. CSPA can provide a range of services to assist with these objectives as outlined on our Planning & Building Control Applications Support page.

Noise in the Workplace

Waste management facilities can present significant ‘Control of Noise at Work’ concerns which CSP Acoustics can help mitigate through design and, for operating businesses, by assessing noise exposures and helping with Control of Noise at Work Regulations compliance. More information on these issues can be seen on our Noise in the Workplace page.

Early Decisions Make a Difference

It is a fact that the impact of many acoustical issues can be reduced by making appropriate early stage design decisions - site layout, building planning, materials and structures choices can all affect the magnitude and therefore cost of dealing with noise, privacy and communication issues. To help designers become more aware of the impact of acoustics on design and development CSP Acoustics is happy to provide CPD Updates on Acoustics and Noise issues to design practices and client organisations. Lunchtime, or longer, CPD sessions can be arranged for delivery in-house to suit client and design organisations.
