Environmental Noise & Vibration

Achieving an environment free from noise and vibration impact is becoming a challenge for many industry and commercial sectors as well as governments.  Our ability to work with both industry and regulatory agencies throughout North America ensures that our clients comply with existing regulations and maintain compatibility with adjacent land uses into the future.

R.A. Group can assist you with all of your environmental noise and vibration needs.  Our expertise includes: site compliance assessment, acoustic audits, zoning and bylaw compliance, ISO 9613 modeling, landuse planning, source mitigation & abatement, construction and demolition site monitoring and transportation impact assessment.
We use stateoftheart acoustical modeling programs to assess the impact of proposed and existing industrial, commercial and transportation noise on nearby noise sensitive landuses.  Our understanding and experience in working with regulators to assist in the development, evaluation and enforcement of noise and vibration requirements allow us a unique perspective in working with our clients to navigate the increasingly complex environmental considerations facing all stakeholders.
