AURACLE ACOUSTICS  -  Activities

Road traffic noise - the establishing of road traffic noise levels using appropriate monitoring techniques and predictions based on traffic flow counts and forecasts - the technical memorandum 'Calculation of Road Traffic Noise' (CRTN) - the assessment of road traffic noise levels in terms of the 'Noise Insulation Regulations' and PPG24 - the control of road traffic noise levels using development and building design and acoustic barriers

Railway noise and vibration - the establishing of railway noise levels using appropriate monitoring techniques and predictions based on rail traffic data - the technical memorandum 'Calculation of Railway Noise' (CRN) - the assessment of railway noise levels in terms of PPG24 - the control of railway noise levels using development and building design and acoustic barriers - the monitoring, prediction assessment and control of railway vibration as required by BS6472: 1992: 'Evaluation of Human Exposure to Vibration in Buildings (1 Hz to 80 Hz)'

Aircraft noise - the establishing of aircraft noise levels using appropriate monitoring techniques and published noise contour maps - the assessment of aircraft noise levels in terms of PPG24 - the control of aircraft noise levels using specific forms of construction

Industrial noise - the establishing of noise levels associated with particular industrial sites using appropriate monitoring techniques - the assessment of these noise levels in terms of BS4142: 1997: 'Method for Rating Industrial Noise Affecting Mixed Residential and Industrial Areas' - the control of noise from industrial sources and other commercial properties

Construction noise and vibration - the establishing of noise levels associated with construction (and demolition) sites and other non-permanent activities such as minerals extraction using appropriate monitoring techniques - the assessment of these noise levels in terms relevant guidance - the control of noise from such noise sources - the monitoring, prediction assessment and control of vibration construction and demolition activities as required by BS6472: 1992: 'Evaluation of Human Exposure to Vibration in Buildings (1 Hz to 80 Hz)' and as may be required to avoid damage to buildings and other structures

Noise Control - noise control at source and in the immediate vicinity of the source - control of noise from railways and roads - mitigation by means of site layout and internal layout of buildings - acoustic barriers

Vibration - BS6472: 1992: 'Evaluation of Human Exposure to Vibration in Buildings (1 Hz to 80 Hz)' - Vibration Dose Value (VDV) - estimated VDV (eVDV) - daytime and night-time vibration criteria - vibration in buildings and sensitive buildings - potential of vibration to cause damage to buildings
