Building Mechanical Noise & Vibration


Mechanical systems such as HVAC, Compressors, Pumps and Chillers can generate noise and vibration that can travel through building structures and interfere with the use of spaces inside the building. Our team can identify sources of intrusive noise and vibration and design solutions to mitigate their effects on building occupants.

Buildings including spaces for commercial, residential and institutional use have inherent expectations of quiet and to allow for communication and peace of mind for their occupants.  Building mechanical systems often compromise this expectation by adding intrusive noise and vibration, which can result in reduced productivity, quality of life and health.  In addition to the impact on building occupants noise and vibration is also an indicator of mechanical problems that can shorten the life of your equipment.  We have the expertise to work with your design team on new installations/construction as well as assessing and providing solutions for existing systems. We can work with you on all of your mechanical system noise and vibration from all sources including HVAC, Chillers, Fans, Plumbing, Pumps, Powered Air Terminal Units or Generators.

We work with design, maintenance and process engineering professionals providing assessment, noise abatement and mitigation, passive noise control, active vibration control, acoustic design, reverberation mitigation and sound isolation. The R.A. Group provide solutions for your noise and vibration problem.
