Air traffic growth, urban development pressures and changing community expectations, means that environmental noise is a key challenge for regulators, airport operators and planning authorities tasked with balancing the wider benefits of aircraft operations with the impacts to neighbouring communities. Conversely, new aircraft and monitoring technologies provide better opportunities to manage noise impacts.
We have more than 20 years experience in the assessment and management of aircraft noise in Australia and New Zealand. Our experience is based on work carried out for major international airports, military bases and regional airports, including the majority of Australian military and New Zealand civilian airports. Our aviation work also encompasses acoustic design of airport terminals including assessment with local noise regulations, logistics optimization and design of internal public spaces.
