Planning to install air conditioning units, condensers for refrigeration or standby generators? To avoid noise related complaints from local residents, Local Authorities are likely to require an acoustic report and noise assessment of the proposed installations. Your planning officer or an environmental health officer may ask for a BS4142:2014 noise assessment.
BS4142 surveys can be carried out on existing installations or to address any anticipated problems that could arise from those planned for installation at a later date.
The level of noise impact the industrial unit may have is based on its location, acoustic characteristics and operational hours. If the noise levels do adversely affect the surrounding residential dwellings you may need to change the unit, re-install it at different location, change its hours of operation or instal the appropriate acoustic enclosures and/or barriers.
Dakat can carry out your BS4142:2014 noise assessment, evaluate any noise concerns and provide a full report including recommendations and courses of action for you to consider.
