During this time of concern and uncertainty we’d like to express our sincere appreciation to all individuals working tirelessly around the clock to help others. 

During the COVID-19 Pandemic FDI Acoustics will be following the advice of the AER, OGC, Provincial Government, Federal Government and WHO.

Please note that FDI has been in discussion with the Alberta Energy Regulator and the BC Oil and Gas Commission regarding Noise Impact Assessments required during these uncertain times. At this time, we will be completing Theoretical NIA’s only and please be assured that FDI has discussed multiple scenarios where under normal operating conditions in the province of Alberta and British Columbia a site visit or compliance monitoring would be required.

In 2011, FDI’s employees were setup to allow for remote office access and we will continue to maintain safety, client service and confidentiality from within our remote and current office locations. Should you require further information, have any questions or require past or present NIA information or assistance please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone.

FDI will continue to support you and your projects and we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you, your team, family and friends the very best.
