Air Conditioning Noise Survey Case Study

On numerous occasions APT has been commissioned to assess whether the noise level from air conditioning units at the rear and/or top of commercial buildings show any increment in the existing background at the façade/s of the nearest sensitive property. APT have undertaken Noise Impact Assessments to consider whether the noise at the nearest sensitive properties are within acceptable levels.
Eligibility for planning approval on the grounds of noise are then assessed using the guidance given in World Health Organisation Guidelines (WHO) and local guidelines.

Our report therefore described a noise impact assessment of the site, the subsequent analysis to determine the noise environment of the proposed air-conditioning unit and compared the results with national and local standards and specific criteria. The report included the following information:

• Location of the nearest sensitive window at the closest residential property.
• Proposed operational hours of the air units.
• Background noise levels assessment over the proposed hours of operation.
• Frequency band analysis of noise of the proposed plant.
Calculations for the predicted noise level 1 meter from the window of the nearest residential property.
