We are a leader and a recognized international authority in rail transit noise and vibration. Our first transit project for BART in 1966 marked the beginning of successful, often pioneering, work on over 400 transit and rail projects in the United States and abroad. We have served as the systemwide acoustical consultant from the initial environmental impact phase through the engineering design phases for several U.S. rail systems. Our work for the Transportation Research Board, USDOT, and FTA has significantly advanced transit noise and vibration control around the world. Our continued success on projects is the result of innovative and cost-effective solutions and the unparalleled knowledge and experience of our professional staff.
