Subsequent Residential Development
Marshall Day Acoustics is the consultant of choice for many residential developers looking to build new estates next to major roads. Clients include Places Victoria, Mirvac, Australand and National Pacific.
Adjacent to the Geelong Ring Road, Marshall Day Acoustics has undertaken noise mitigation designs for several developers, and also for land owners (notably VicRoads and the City of Geelong) wishing to sell land to developers. Drawing on our extensive experience in this area, we have assisted clients to successfully address VicRoads’ requirements despite issues such as traffic forecasts that were revised upwards several times, a complex staging plan that allowed noise barriers to be constructed only at the final stages and, at one site, unusually low existing noise levels. At this last site, Marshall Day was able to demonstrate to VicRoads that the low noise levels were a real effect due to existing site conditions and not an artefact of the modelling, thus releasing the client from the need for noise barriers.
