dBx Case Studies - Construction

Noise, dust and vibration are the necessary evils of any construction site, particularly during demolition on urban sites. We are also able to model and predict construction noise and vibration impact to support Section 61 applications and agree to appropriate limits on on-site emissions with the Local Authority.

We provide and maintain on-site noise, dust and vibration monitoring systems for use on construction and industrial sites. By carefully monitoring the levels of these pollutants, we are able to minimise disruption as far as possible, and take immediate action where levels exceed agreed limits. Our system includes instant text alerts to the site manager if noise, vibration or dust (PM 10, PM 2.5 or TSP) limits are breached, as well as access to an online portal where you can review all data.

We have provided the noise and vibration chapter for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for a number of major schemes, assessing the magnitude and significance of potential impacts and advising on mitigation measures to protect nearby noise sensitive receptors.

dBx Case Studies - Office & Workspace

As we emerge dazed from our home offices and start getting back into the workplace, we are sure to become more aware of the noises around us, which can distract us or prevent us from performing effectively.

In open-plan offices, for example, it can be important to be able to communicate with your immediate team, but you don’t want to be able to hear everything that Loud Howard across the room is describing. Confidentiality in meeting rooms, quiet rooms, and cellular offices, can all be critical too.

In a busy call centre, it’s important that the hubbub of other voices doesn’t distract an individual call handler, or affect a caller’s experience, ability to hear, or perception of privacy.

The acoustic design of workspaces considers all of these factors holistically, balancing specification and detailing with appropriate levels of background noise and room acoustic treatments to enhance productivity and comfort.
