Our experts in the field of sound immission protection investigate the origin, propagation, and impact of external noise. As an inevitable consequence of social and technical progress, noise is omnipresent in our environment and influences people's performance and quality of life.
The primary objective is therefore to reduce the sum of all disturbing noises to an acceptable level. Especially in the urban environment of large modern cities, where not only the demand for mobility but also the flow of goods and merchandise is constantly rising, this poses a particular challenge.
Through careful land use and development planning, the course can be set in advance for a pleasant acoustic urban climate. Subsequent alterations to existing buildings, on the other hand, are much more difficult to implement and incur much higher costs. Local noise protection measures are often the only way to improve a situation, at least in the most affected areas. In addition, the façades of buildings can be designed to reduce the noise inside to an acceptable level with the windows closed (e.g. by installing soundproof windows).
Sound immission protection is highly relevant to people's well-being and health, both inside and outside buildings, and is therefore of great practical importance in urban environments. In association with building acoustics, we offer the following services in the field of sound immission protection:
