New construction often takes place in areas with noisy background sound levels due to traffic, mechanical equipment outside of neighboring buildings, aircraft, etc. HFP is skilled in assessing the quantity and quality of noise present so that appropriate measures can be taken in the design process.
In the case where a building is existing, environmental noises can be measured so that acoustical treatments can be applied to the noise source or the affected building. HFP performs many noise surveys using laboratory-grade sound level meters capable of logging acoustical data over time. Our staff is very skilled at making efficient and relevant acoustical measurements.
