Bombardier Office Refurbishment, Derby

Bombardier are a large transport engineering company with a depot and offices in Derby. NoiseAir were approached at the initial stages stages of the project to refurbish a large Victorian building, to accommodate a state-of-the-art engineering design centre and offices.

The nature of the old building meant excessive reverberation levels which required specialist acoustics consultation and design, to ensure a comfortable working environment for their large number of employees.

NoiseAir carried out extensive on-site noise analysis and mapping which was then collated into a report for our client. Appropriate assessment and consultation allowed recommendations of appropriate acoustic products, whilst also adhering to the client’s budget.

NoiseAir work closely with specialist acoustic material suppliers allowing us to select the most suitable materials and products for the project. Along with numerous other contractors the project was delivered on time and within budget.

A few words from our client:
“Following a year of planning and almost two further years of construction work, has led to this initial concept becoming a reality thus transforming a 180+ year old Victorian building into a state-of-the art, 21st century Engineering Hub – This project was extremely complex and at times very challenging None of this could have been accomplished without the contribution of each and every one of you and of course your teams. I therefore, on behalf of Bombardier, Sam Mall, and myself, wish to thank you all for your involvement, support and professional conduct throughout.”

Dog daycare centre, Cheshire

NoiseAir were contacted by a local landowner who proposed to change the use of his land to a commercial dog daycare centre. The local authority requested a noise impact assessment as part of the planning application to ensure that the new business would not cause significant disturbance to nearby residents. NoiseAir were able to carry out acoustic 3D modelling to accurately calculate proposed noise levels at nearby receptors and provide appropriate mitigation advice to aid the planning application. NoiseAir were able to liaise directly with the local EHO to discuss the project methodology and address any concerns. Data analysis was presented in a full technical report and concluded that there would be no significant impact to nearby residents.

Wine shop & deli, Manchester

NoiseAir were instructed to carry out a noise survey by a client who owned a deli in Manchester. The business had been operational for some time, however the expansion of the business to provide more eat-in food resulted in installation of kitchen extraction ducting on the outside of the building. Unfortunately, local residents in the vicinity raised concerns to the local council regarding the noise levels generated by the ducting and NoiseAir were brought in to carry out a survey.

The assessment highlighted that noise levels were exceeding local authority recommendations and guidelines, however NoiseAir were able to propose various mitigation options at varying costs. The client was able to overcome the issue by installation of an acoustic enclosure and on retesting, the noise levels were favourable in terms of the nearest receptors.
