Acoustics & noise

Ramboll’s experienced Acoustics, Noise & Vibration engineers specialise in transport and environmental acoustics, noise control and vibration isolation. We have pioneered acoustic modelling, giving aural demonstrations that allow clients to hear projects during the design process. The ability to forecast noise levels is crucial for improving a scheme’s acoustic ambience. 
Our acoustic services include planning advice and surveys for building acoustics, environmental noise and vibration, and acoustic performance
 
 

Environmental acoustics

Ramboll uses a range of techniques including noise and vibration monitoring, environmental impact assessment and noise mapping to establish the ambient acoustics of a site.

Our extensive knowledge and range of integrated design principles allow us to propose effective acoustic control solutions, while identifying potential impacts. We have proven track record in ameliorating the noise and vibration from transportation, construction and environmental sources.

Transportation infrastructure

Ramboll’s portfolio of transport projects covers air, rail, road, shipping, offshore and terminal/interchange buildings, the acoustics of which are integral to project design. Our multidisciplinary team works with the latest measurement equipment, digital modelling, noise-reduction techniques and design processes for a result that balances the needs of clients, users and the local community.

Pioneering modelling

Ramboll is a pioneer of scale and computer modelling. All our acoustic modelling techniques, physical and virtual, are used to assess the impact of changes and identify the most effective solutions.

We developed SoundSpace, based on the industry-standard modelling software Odeon, which when linked to a loudspeaker array creates a 3D surround sound environment. SoundSpace enables the acoustic quality of a project to be evaluated at design stage, allowing decisions on possible scheme modifications.

Ramboll part-owns and contributes to the development of Odeon, used to model the acoustics of spaces and to create auralisations. We have comprehensive experience of environmental acoustic modelling software such as SoundPlan, CADNA and NoiseMap.

Our services

We provide a unique range of acoustic services that covers all stages of a project from planning advice to final inspection, including:

  • Assessment of road and railway noise for environmental impacts
  • Specification of sound requirements for acoustic programs
  • Identification of noise-reduction solutions
  • Generation of 3D models to see and hear the project’s sound or noise
  • Due diligence reports
  • Expert witness testimony
