Acoustics Consultancy Services Summary:
Broadly our noise and acoustic solutions are divided into Environmental Noise and Building Acoustics and the relationship between different soundscapes or spaces. Acoustic solutions are expertly applied to these settings through measurement, calculation and design to achieve the desired enhancement or mitigation.
Where environmental noise is to be considered for planning applications, TGSacoustics provides measurement and assessment of sound levels with reporting and services as a professional witness.

On the flip side of environmental noise sits building acoustics. We can create acoustic solutions for internal spaces with issues of poor intelligibility and excessive reverberation. Creative use of materials and surfaces can often fix troublesome sound spaces and create a better experience for listeners and performers alike.
