We are an established, independent acoustic consultancy practice working with architects, developers, planners and contractors throughout the UK and Europe.Contact us
For simple, practical design advice or to test noise, sound and vibration levels, speak to our friendly acoustic team.
We provide advice and testing for construction and environmental projects to be acoustically fit for purpose and regulatory compliant.
We are members of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and all technical staff are Members or Associate Members of the Institute of Acoustics (IoA).
Brought into the project at the tender stage by Mace, we were asked to do an acoustic audit of the RIBA Stage 3 design to identify any risks or opportunities for the contractor. Once Mace had been appointed, we were employed as acoustic consultants to keep watch over Stage 4 Technical Design, Stage 5 Construction, and Stage 6 Completion.Learn more
Comprising of a residential development located north of Glasgow, the project involved the conversion of a historic building and the accompanying modern extension into a number of different flats. The historic section of the building was designed in 1837 by notable architect William Leiper and a rear extension had been added in the mid-20th century.Learn more
A three-phase development, we were engaged to act as the acoustic engineer by McAleer & Rushe during phase two of the development. Following our involvement in the second stage, we were then asked to be involved in phase three which is currently under construction.Learn more
We were commissioned by Piovan UK to provide advice regarding problematic equipment vibration levels. The issue centred around chalk dosing equipment which was experiencing high levels of vibration, thus affecting the ability of the base loading cell to accurately measure quantities of chalk. The goal of this project was to investigate the issue and provide advice.Learn more
The project comprised the development of a six-storey purpose-built student accommodation building, containing 102 residential flats, associated common areas and commercial units.Learn more
Adnitt Acoustics was contracted by the client to provide post-completion sound insulation testing for an apartment building. We were involved as independent testers to measure compliance. Unusually for these types of measurements we were involved after practical completion when the building was already in use.Learn more
The project comprised a Unite student building and a Maldron hotel. We were originally engaged to undertake an impact assessment for the planning process through McAleer & Rushe. We assessed the following potential sources of noise; pubs and clubs, traffic noise, and potential noise and vibration from the subwayLearn more
The project consisted of one 8 storey building and one 5 storey building, housing 102 private luxury residential apartments. Due to the location in central London, there were a number of factors that had to be considered in the design and construction of the project.Learn more
Adnitt mastered the complex acoustic requirements for this education building which contained a very diverse and not acoustically complementary range of uses.
I have been very impressed with the friendly, professional service received throughout… and have recommended Adnitt Acoustics to other Contractors in Orkney to hopefully spread the word about them. I have no doubt that when any of our jobs require this service Adnitt will be at the top of the list.
The greatest compliment that I can express to the acousticians on this project is that this multi-function arts venue worked straight out of the box on Day One. Whilst accepting that there were many contributors to the successful end result, Hunter Acoustic’s and Adnitt Acoustics' care and detailing throughout the design process was a real contributor to the problem-free commissioning of this theatre. During system tuning, a small orchestra and singers tested the room acoustics and the ACS variable acoustics system. This was a pleasurable experience because the engineers were able to concentrate on the optimum setting up of the system without spending time compensating for faults. The dynamic of the sound experience for both the performers on the stage as well as the listeners in the auditorium was evident from the compliments given afterwards.
