What is a noise impact assessment?

A noise impact assessment is also known as an environmental noise impact assessment.


It is an exercise of determining how noise sources will impact on the environment and/or immediate surrounding area.

Who conducts an environmental noise impact assessment?

A noise impact assessment is a complex issue and must be performed properly. It takes a qualified and experienced professional.


In England, the noise impact assessment is performed by qualified acoustic engineers. An acoustic engineer who is a corporate member of the Institute of Acoustics.

How much does an environmental noise impact assessment cost?

We charge for a professional and chartered acoustics engineer to perform a noise assessment, write the report and provide noise mitigation measures and, if required, a noise management strategy.   The acoustic engineer is a corporate member of the Institute of Acoustics and a chartered engineer registered with the Engineering Council.


Every noise assessment is different. The cost of the assessment is based on many factors. So listing a cost here would be misleading.
