AcoustiTest™ Complaint Investigation
Considerations other than just the level and character of acoustic energy can affect noise and vibration. From psycho-acoustic factors to overly sensitive neighbours it can be difficult to identify the precise cause of the problem, let alone determine an appropriate solution.
Acoustical Control Engineers & Consultants experts have extensive experience of investigating and resolving complaints about noise and vibration responding appropriately to Abatement Notices, and troubleshooting existing acoustic problems. Though every case is unique, our investigations typically involve some or all of the following:
- Understand the cause and magnitude of the problem. Liaise with the complainant where appropriate to identify the perceived problem(s) and help to set reasonable expectations.
- Establish whether the complaint is justified and if so, understand the actual cause and magnitude of the problem.
- Identify the range of potential solutions. From a quick fix such as switching equipment off to far more complex problems, we’ll determine a solution that will resolve the underlying issue without incurring unnecessary costs.
- Inform other relevant parties so they can make the best possible decisions.
- Implement the solution(s), assessing and reviewing progress as appropriate.
