Industrial Noise Assessments
A plant/industrial noise assessment is regularly required for any new industrial development, to limit the impact on nearby noise-sensitive receptors in accordance with BS 4142:2014.
As experts in noise, we have years of experience conducting noise surveys and noise impact assessments for a wide range of industrial facilities, across the UK.
We provide a nationwide service, conducting noise surveys to support initial planning applications, discharging planning conditions, environmental permits, occupational noise at work assessments, or noise investigations post-occupancy.

Baseline Noise Surveys
Noise surveys can be required for nearly all types of development as part of planning application. We can conduct short term attended noise surveys or long-term unattended noise monitoring. We provide a nationwide service, conducting noise surveys to support initial planning applications, discharging planning conditions. We could be at your site the next day, so talk to one of our noise experts.
Industrial Noise Assessments for Planning
Noise pollution from mechanical plant and equipment requires a noise impact assessment to consider the impact on local residents, in accordance with BS 4142:2014. We conduct assessments for small scale machinery, up to large industrial developments such as factories, depots, waste from energy plants, recycling centres, and power stations.
A vibration survey is commonly required to assess the risk of human exposure to vibration in buildings which sit close to roads, railways, and industrial facilities. Our vibration surveys and assessments in accordance with BS 6472 are designed to support new developments which are to be constructed close to vibration sources, or existing properties with vibration complaints.
Retail and Restaurants
Many high street premises require a noise assessment, particularly with flats above. Kitchen extract fans, air conditioning units, and chillers, can all generate significant levels of noise. ParkerJones Acoustics can turn around noise assessments for commercial outlets quickly and efficiently, so give us a call today.
Wind Farm/Turbine Noise Surveys
A wind turbine noise assessment in accordance with ETSU-R-97 is a legal requirement before the development of any new wind turbine/farm, from single turbine to large scale Section 36 farms. Our robust approach stands up to scrutiny from the Local Planning Authority. We offer site specific turbine surveys and desktop noise assessments.
Noise at Work Surveys (Occupational Noise)
A noise at work survey is regularly required by law for employees subject to long periods of sustained exposure to high noise levels. Employers must follow the Control of Noise at Work Regulations set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), taking action to reduce the noise exposure to workers. An occupational noise assessment is a legal requirement.
