Monitoring a construction or demolition site for noise compliance is a complex task. It may involve more than one monitoring point and the monitoring itself may have to continue for many months. Here’s 5 Top Tips to follow when planning a construction noise monitoring project.
Large scale construction projects, especially those located in built up areas, are the most difficult to manage in terms of noise levels emitted from site operations. The nature of the environments in which these projects are located often makes construction noise monitoring difficult. Cirrus Environmental was tasked with producing a successful solution.
The monitoring of boundary noise levels in urban locations has become a high priority over recent years. Background noise levels in these environments are potentially already high. New developments in these locations threaten to increase noise levels even further and affect nearby residents. This is where the phrase urban noise monitoring becomes useful.
The sound of new-born lambs bleating is something that most people would be happy to wake up to on a Spring morning – or perhaps not? Learn how Acoustic Consultant Louise Alderson approached this livestock noise monitoring project with help from Cirrus Environmental.

There has been an interesting update come across my desk this week relating to the BS4142 noise impact guidelines. Now, that may not sound the most exciting update in the world but for anyone who works in environmental noise, planning or development they need to sit up and take note.
Cirrus Environmental has a long association with Eggborough Power Station. Here is a case study on how we recently provided a permanent noise monitoring solution.
