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.
The current approach to sound-proof a facility would be to guarantee the noise control to the Owner’s specified decibel level at a given location relative to the building site. The location for measurement is often the property line of the compressor station or the nearest occupied dwelling. Clear Creek offers guaranteed compliance with local codes and noise control laws, and we can provide a turn-key quote that guarantees a certain decibel level at a specified distance from the building. Due to the increased loads the sound proof roof and panel systems impose on the structure, Clear Creek will provide a pre-engineered solution to accommodate the system and will consult with specialists to arrive at the best cost-effective solution to noise.
With Clear Creek's unique NoiseShield design, you can prepare for the future. If you are required to become compliant with new noise regulations or if you begin to receive noise complaints from local landowners, you will have the flexibility to add noise abatement solutions.
