Greater Manchester

Blue Tree Acoustics - Noise and Acoustic Consultancy in Greater Manchester - Stockport, Bolton, Bury, and Oldham.

Blue Tree Acoustics routinely works on sites in and around Greater Manchester and its outskirts.

Blue Tree Acoustics offers sound insulation testing in Manchester.  We have two senior consultants, both of whom are Robust Details Senior inspectors.  Each one also has either been or currently is an Association of Noise Consultants examiner. 

Planning noise assessments in Manchester and Salford are another area where we provide a high level of quality  in assessing and reporting.  Road traffic noise, rail noise, bar/pub/club noise are all assessed competently by Blue Tree Acoustics.  We also give advice for schools/colleges and other educational or recreational settings.

We undertake BS4142 assessments for industrial and/or commercial sound that might impact on nearby residential accommodation, or perhaps upon a school or nursing home.  BS4142 assessments have been undertaken by Blue Tree Acoustics in Manchester since 2008, initially under the previous BS4142:1997 version while it was in force, then BS4142:2014, and presently BS4142:2014 + A1:2019.  Correct assessment of ambient levels, residual levels, specific levels, rating levels, as well as background noise levels is essential in order to determine the likely level of impact that might be caused by the specific noise source.  BS4142 noise assessments in Manchester can apply to plant noise, mechanical services noise, forklift noise, and noise from many different types of operations, including factories or workshops.

Bars and clubs operating in Manchester have the potential to impact on dwellings, and we have investigated and advised on these issues many times before.
