Noise Consultants
Adnitt Acoustics

Adnitt Acoustics is an independent acoustic consultancy practice based in Epsom in Surrey. Our services span the entire design and build process, from providing sound and vibration design advice and solutions to testing and monitoring of noise, dust and air leakage.

With most development sites in the South East affected by some form of transport noise, meeting the acoustic components of local authority planning requirements can be onerous. We help clients through the planning process by assessing the extent of any problem, providing practical recommendations, producing the necessary reports and, if appropriate, attending planning meetings.

We can also assess the situation where a new development might affect noise sensitive residential neighbours, including licensing and planning applications.
