How to Plan for Noise Reduction
eNoise Control recommends planning for noise reduction in the design phase of your new work space or building. We have often worked with architects and engineers in the planning stage of a project. This is the time to identify buildings or equipment to be installed or constructed in a noise sensitive location.
The most common noise sources to consider include outdoor HVAC, generators, and compressors. Using sound level data from the equipment manufacturer, we can predict the sound levels at varying distancing using our outdoor noise software. We can then use the software to predict the noise reduction after installation of noise control products such as a sound barrier wall. Utilizing resources such as Google Maps and dropping the data and graphics onto the area of concern provides a very helpful planning tool for our clients to use in planning and budgeting.
The planning stage is a good time to review all of the noise control options and the results they can provide to find the best choice for the project and situation. Potential solutions include moving the unit to a different location, selecting a quieter unit, and evaluating noise control products. Understanding the sound reduction you can expect from the installation of noise abatement products will help you choose the most cost effective solution for your project.
