“We are acoustic experts who think like designers, engineers and architects.” Gavin Stevenson, head of acoustics
We specialise in architectural and building acoustics. Our success results from our interdisciplinary working environment which provides a unique level of understanding of design and engineering.
We combine scientific analysis, creative design skills and practical experience. Our involvement in projects ranges from small-scale noise assessments to full consultancy on major long-term schemes.
