Currently studying sound insulation training. Joined Stuart King Architecture and Design in Dec 2019.

We will always use a source-path-receiver model to address acoustic issues. This focuses on identifying the root mechanical source of any noise. This is an approach historically practiced and promoted by ISVR and recommended in British Standards.

It is usually the most efficient (cheapest) approach because any one source can have multiple paths and receivers. If the source mechanism can be addressed, then we can eliminate the need for mitigation of the multiple noise paths to the receivers. In order to achieve this, the engineer needs to have a very broad understanding of machinery, physics and noise source mechanisms involved. We offer this experience as a service.

Only where the source cannot be directly addressed are mitigation measures required, this is the case for most issues related to transport noise and residential dwellings.
