Project: Lower Compton Waste Recovery Park
Client: Barratt Hills Waste Management
Hills Waste Management approached 24 Acoustics in 2012 to provide the noise and vibration chapter for an environmental statement associated with the proposed redevelopment of their operations at Lower Compton Waste Recovery Park. With some activities ceasing and some new noise-generating operations proposed, it was essential to survey each individual noise source in isolation in order to produce a noise impact assessment. The data from the noise survey was then used to populate an acoustic model of the site, calculating the operational noise levels at the nearest residential properties. By switching individual noise sources on and off, it was possible to build an effective and robust noise assessment that accurately predicted changes in noise levels according to each of the proposed activities on the redeveloped site.
