Acoustical questions or issues that often arise as part of a litigated conflict:
What was the level of noise or vibration?
What could be heard?
Are the noise levels sufficient to cause hearing loss?
Are the sound or vibration levels appropriate for a specific environment?
Do the noise and vibration levels comply with appropriate standards
What does the noise actually sound like at a particular distance?
Is the poor acoustic isolation due to a design defect or a construction defect?
Our expertise is called upon to:
provide expert witness analysis and testimony
document noise and vibration levels
assess hearing damage risk
conduct audibility studies for accident investigations
conduct sound demonstrations
determine the causes of inappropriate building acoustics
