Our assessments of road traffic noise include :

  • Measurements and assessments of road traffic noise on proposed building sites near busy roads according to the EPA "NSW Road Noise Policy".

  • Determination of required acoustic properties (weighted sound reduction index: Rw) of roofs, external walls and doors, and windows of buildings on sites near busy roads.

  • Designing (the position, height and materials) of effective noise barriers in front of residences exposed to excessive road traffic noise.

  • Modeling of dispersion of road traffic noise with TNM - Traffic Noise Model of the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration Traffic Noise Model (FHWA TNM; the successor of FHWA Stamina).

  • Certification of compliance with Australian Design Rules:
    • ADR 28/01 : External Noise of Motor Vehicles;
    • ADR 39/00 : External Noise of Motor Cycles; and
    • ADR 56/00 : Moped Noise.
