About Dynamic Response - Kent Noise Consultants (The South East)
(Dartford, Sevenoaks, West Malling, Maidstone, Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Margate and beyond!)

Dynamic Response are independent noise consultants based in Kent, South East England. Previously located in Ashford, we moved to Wingham, Kent near Canterbury and again to Sandwich, Kent. Our current Sandwich office is within a relatively short distance of larger towns and cities such as Ashford, Canterbury, Ramsgate, Margate, Dover, Folkestone, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Rochester, Seven Oaks and West Malling etc. Based on our location and utilising nearby transportation links including high speed rail links, we are able to extend our services to Kent, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Sussex, Suffolk, London and other nearby locations.

Our industry sector/professional title of 'Noise Consultants' has been elaborated over the years meaning we are referred to by different people using various titles including Acoustic Consultants, Noise Consultants, Acoustic Engineers, Sound Engineers, Sound Technicians, Noise Technicians, Noise Surveyors, Health And Safety Consultants, Noise Planners, Planning Consultants and even, Noise Measurement People etc. Most of the services that we offer are considered to fall under one or more of the categories above and generally include a noise survey and/or noise impact assessment of some sort.

We pride ourselves in delivering high quality acoustic services to both individuals and professionals. Using hi-tech noise monitoring equipment in conjunction with various hardware interfaces and computer based software solutions, we are able to undertake accurate noise measurements and noise surveys for various purposes.

Based on our previous work, we have a large range of experience in noise surveys and noise assessments related to residential, industrial/commercial, educational, healthcare, entertainment and other major business sectors. Whatever your requirements we aim to help you by providing acoustic services and solutions which are represented in a professional, clear and understandable form.


So what is a 'Noise Impact Assessment'?

A noise impact assessment or noise assessment usually follows a noise survey. The purpose is to ascertain how a generated noise is likely to affect a receiving point or multiple receiving points, be it existing or proposed. In order to undertake a noise impact assessment it is necessary to know two things, the noise which needs to be assessed and the existing noise in which to assess it against.

It is usual for noise impact assessments to assess the resultant or generated noise expressed for example as the LAeq,T against the existing background noise level represented as for example the LA90.

For reference, the LAeq,T is the A-weighted 'equivalent continuous noise level' which is an average of the total sound energy measured over a specified time period, and the LA90 is the A-weighted noise level exceeded for 90% of the measurement duration (T).

An example of a typical noise impact assessment methodology is that of British Standard 4142: 1997, ‘Method for Rating industrial noise affecting mixed residential and industrial areas’. BS 4142 compares a rating level against the existing background LA90 level in order to determine an excess of rating level above the existing background level. Simply put, how many decibels the contribution of generated noise either is, or will be above or below the existing background. The difference between the two parameters e.g. -10 or +5 dB etc, can then be used to assess the actual or predicted noise impact with regard to complaints being likely or not etc.

In addition to the example above, Kent Local Authorities can request a number of other types of noise impact assessments to be carried out on a site depending on the existing or proposed usage be it industrial, residential, occupational, planning, transportation or otherwise. We aim to provide guidance, undertake any noise survey or noise assessment / noise impact assessment and recommend noise mitigation advice in connection with any client’s requirements.
