NOISE IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
FDIs assessments provide all the necessary information for clients to access multiple vendors to address their individual needs for noise control products and solutions. As an independent acoustical consulting firm, FDI has no alliances with equipment manufacturers or installers and suppliers of noise control products. FDIs acoustical consultants provide independent, practical, cost effective, noise control solutions.
There are two types of NIA’s –Theoretical and Measured
The Noise Impact Assessment (NIA) is a technical report that presents the calculated existing or future noise impact of a facility on its environment.
Theoretical NIA’s are derived from a combination of manufacturers data and FDI’s measurement library. Sound pressure level data is used to calculate sound power levels for the significant noise sources associated with the existing and/or proposed equipment. FDI’s theoretical NIA’s follow accepted acoustical evaluation practices.
Measured NIA’s are developed from site visits where acoustic measurements are taken by a professional acoustical consultant. The measured sound pressure level data is used to calculate sound power levels for the significant noise sources associated with the existing equipment.
FDI Acoustics employs professional acoustical consultants along with a selection of noise modeling platforms used to predict noise impact under a variety of environmental conditions. The NIA includes the sound level of the facility, the sound sources used in the assessment and their origin, the equipment operating conditions, the noise model parameters and the state of compliance with current regulations for the location assessed.
Noise Impact Assessments fulfill AER-(ERCB), AUC, OGC, Provincial, Local, Federal and State Regulatory Requirements
Your Noise Impact Assessment is a comprehensive, compliant, technical report that presents the calculated existing or future noise impact of a facility on its environment, along with any recommendations for compliance.
