Industrial noise projects come in a variety of forms, but all include evaluation and control of industrial process noise. Interior noise concerns may involve employee occupational noise exposure from mechanical equipment and/or manufacturing processes; mitigation strategies include controlling noise at the source and/or isolating the employee. Exterior noise concerns may include emissions from building systems such as co-generation facilities, interior or exterior emergency generators, and combustion fans; concerns may also include noise emissions from vehicle operations, especially from trucks during nighttime hours. OAA assists architects, mechanical engineers, and project development teams with these issues and more through prediction of interior and exterior sound levels, comparison with project criteria based on regulatory limits and/or ambient sound levels, and development of recommendations for noise control elements.
