  • Construction
  • We have been involved in some of the UK’s largest construction projects, such as Crossrail, High Speed 1 and The Thameslink Programme, meaning we have the know-how to meet our clients’ needs. Using the latest acoustics software, we can predict the impact of construction noise – and then work with you to manage these issues.

  • We have extensive experience in preparing Section 61 documentation, which secures agreement with local authorities on any noise issues prior to work commencing. We provide ongoing support during each project and can monitor noise and vibration levels to avoid any disruptive acoustics issues during construction.

    Working with our partner company, Enbox Ltd, we can also manage your S61 documentation and noise monitoring on a website database, providing easy access to all relevant material.

  • We cover all types of industrial noise assessments. These range from air conditioning plants, chillers, and air source heat exchangers to waste transfer stations and large industrial facilities.

  • So whether you simply require a noise assessment to support a planning application for a new kitchen extract fan or require a full acoustic study for a material processing yard, then we can help.

  • TransportIcon
  • Transport
  • Road and rail noise is regarded as a major problem for the UK and it is an issue that 7wa has extensive experience of, allowing us to provide solutions for every stage of the journey.

  • Using the latest acoustic modelling techniques we can predict the impact of road and rail noise, and having worked on some the largest infrastructure projects in the UK, we are well equipped to manage the noise impact of any transport scheme.

  • PlanningIcon
  • Planning
  • 7wa has provided technical acoustic reports to support numerous planning applications. These range from plant noise – such as air conditioning, heat exchangers, and chillers – to full building design, or site layout for larger schemes to mitigate existing noise sources.

  • We also undertake initial site noise surveys to establish suitability for development. This means we work with designers and architects to reduce internal noise from new rooms as well as external sound to garden areas.

  • EnvironmentalIcon
  • Environmental
  • For larger projects that require an Environmental Impact Assessment we can prepare the noise and vibration sections for each report, working as part of the larger environmental team.

  • 7wa’s experience of acoustic input for EIAs has taken in waste transfer facilities, large residential/commercial developments, through to some of the largest infrastructure projects in the UK such as Crossrail.

  • SchoolsIcon
  • Schools
  • Poor acoustics can affect both learning and teaching in the school environment.

  • Building Bulletin 93 provides mandatory acoustic design criteria for new-build schools or school extensions. This includes sound insulation between rooms, internal ambient noise levels,  room reverberation levels and speech transmission.
