Environmental Noise

Environmental noise refers to the presence of unwanted or harmful sound in the environment that can disrupt normal activities, harm human health, or disturb wildlife. It is typically the result of various human activities and natural processes, and it can vary in intensity, frequency, and duration. Common sources of environmental noise include Transportation, industrial and construction activities, recreational activities, public infrastructure, nightlife activities and natural sources. Excessive exposure to environmental noise can have adverse effects on human health, including stress, sleep disturbances, hearing damage, and communication difficulties. It can also disturb wildlife, affecting their behavior, migration patterns, and reproductive success.

CYAcoustics is dedicated to tackling environmental noise concerns by employing a multifaceted approach involving measurement, prediction (through modeling), and control, offering tailored acoustic solutions. Efforts to mitigate environmental noise often entail the use of sound barriers, noise-reducing technologies, urban planning strategies and zoning regulations, as well as public awareness campaigns focused on noise control and reduction. With a comprehensive toolkit of noise and vibration measurement equipment, specialized acoustic software for simulation and analysis, and extensive experience in the industry, CYAcoustics is well-prepared to assist architects, industrial planners, environmental engineers, and clients in comprehending and assessing the impact of noise on their projects.
