Noise abatement is the application of strategies to reduce noise pollution or to control the impact of noise on the environment. This could include constructing sound baffles or using sound-absorbing liners for interior spaces.
Clear Creek building designers understand the importance of noise control issues and regularly consult with sound-proofing specialists and acoustical engineers to alleviate the noise problems created by compressors or other heavy equipment. The application of acoustic treatments in the construction of industrial building projects is often motivated by sensitivity to those living near and working in industrial environments or even mandated by regulatory requirements.
Good buildings make good neighbors!
For many of our clients in the energy industry, environmental protection and community relations are top priorities. They understand the importance of leaving their environment undisturbed by noise. Noise abatement is especially important in high population areas of operation such as the Marcellus and Utica Shale Plays. Many states and cities have stringent building codes with requirements of acoustical analysis to protect nearby residents. Mitigating noise is often key to a company’s continued success in their local community. A well-designed and constructed compressor building can make a real difference in the public perception of an energy company.
