Festival and Event Noise Management and Monitoring

The dBx Acoustics team are music fans as well as noise experts. We know how important it is for festivals and live events to be a good neighbour, as well as providing a great experience for the crowd.

Here’s how we can help;

Licensing Application

  • We’ll work with you to draft your licence application, and liaise with the Local Authority from application to final decision, including negotiating licensing conditions.

  • We’ll prepare your noise management strategy, and make sure that you understand what you need to do in practice.

Noise Monitoring and Management

Our extensive range of equipment allows us to monitor simultaneously at multiple locations during your event, both on- and off-site. This means that we can react quickly to help you control noise levels to comply with your licensing conditions. Our on-site team will also set up a complaints log, and deal with any noise complaints received during the event.

We also set up ‘traffic light’ monitors at the mixing desk for each stage, so that the band’s engineer can monitor noise levels in real-time.

We don’t just show up for the fun part, though. We’ll be there to support your preparation and licence application, provide a noise management plan for the event, and liaise with the

Local Authority on any noise queries. After the event, we’ll provide you with a post-event report which can also be submitted to the licensing authority.

In everything we do, our goal is to make sure that your event is a success in every way – compliance with the noise management plan, being a responsible neighbour, and ensuring the best crowd experience.

dBx helps boost productivity in co-working space

As the workplace evolves, more and more people are working flexibly – whether that be late at night, from a sun terrace in Italy, or in a specially designed co-working space.

Clockwise provide the latter – contemporary private offices and shared workspace with flexible membership plans. With sites in Belfast, Edinburgh and Glasgow, we were delighted to be asked to work on their “new kid on the dock” at the iconic Edward Pavilion on Liverpool’s world-famous Albert Dock.

Appointed by international construction company Ardmac in 2018 and working alongside architects 74, we were asked to help with specifying partitions between the workspaces. Sound insulation is very important for bustling co-working spaces, helping to provide settings that support different activities, such as having private conversations, focused/individual work and collaborative sessions.

We assisted the partition specification and detailing to maintain sound insulation between different workspaces while ensuring we didn’t impact the fabric of the building, which is a 19th century warehouse with preserved original features, including cast iron columns, Victorian brickwork and barrel vaulted ceilings.

We also worked on building services noise control, particularly on the upper floor, which features air handling units sitting on plant decks suspended within the open plan office space.

A historic building on a historic site, we’re proud to have worked on this challenging and exciting project.
