Broadly speaking, an acoustic consultant is a qualified specialist dealing with sound and vibration. An acoustic consultant may work on the control of acoustic conditions in buildings and in the environment for a range of clients.
In very simple terms, when an acoustic consultant isn’t measuring noise or vibration, they will work to predict how noise will behave and, using our knowledge and expertise, write reports for clients, explaining how they can get the results they want and what they will need to do to achieve this.
As in all fields of any industry, some consultants are specialists in a particular area (concert halls, environmental noise, building acoustics etc), however many are generalists, able to turn our expertise to almost any project.
In general, at AF Acoustics much of our work can be divided into either building acoustics or environmental noise.
