Last week, RBA had the pleasure of attending the Annual Association of Noise Consultants’ (ANC) Awards held in Birmingham.
It was with great pleasure that we won the Vibration category, sponsored by Bruel & Kjaer for our hard earned project at Queen Street, Mayfair. The project involved the transformation of office buildings to a collection of high-value residential apartments.
The building itself was situated right above the Jubilee Tube Line, and as a result the site had been affected by high levels of ground borne noise and vibration. Our options to solve the vibration and noise issues were severely restricted, given that the building in question was a listed property, whilst also bearing in mind that floor space was to be maximized as far as possible. Using a range of techniques, we managed to lower the LAF Max levels by over 15dB and achieve full compliance with the client’s stringent requirements.
We are thrilled to have been awarded the award for our originality in approach to the challenge, and had a very enjoyable evening.
