Senior Acoustic Consultant
James attained a bachelor’s degree in Audio Technology and Internet Technology in 2002 from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. He initially became an I.T. Trainer on the use of Microsoft Office applications. In his own time, he went on to study the IOA’s post graduate diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control. During the course, he gained employment at a large independent acoustic consultancy in Suffolk. Starting in 2005, James remained at this consultancy, where he progressed from trainee consultant to acoustic consultant and then to senior consultant. In the 14 years there, James worked on numerous projects; mainly specialising in architectural and building acoustics, such as mixed-use residential schemes, student accommodation schemes, educational facilities, and office developments. These schemes ranged from large regeneration developments to smaller building conversions and covered new build and refurbishment projects. James also dealt with projects at the planning stage, assessing the impact of various new proposals to and from noise sensitive locations.
James joined CSP acoustics in 2019 and is looking forward to assisting clients by delivering pragmatic acoustic advice to any scheme or development.
