Peter Wilson, Technical Director, Echo Barrier
Many organisations find that by using the latest project noise control technology, site noise can be reduced to levels that were only a dream a few years ago. Apart from meeting regulatory requirements more easily and at lower cost, there can also be dramatic project cost and time savings where lower noise levels allow extended working hours. This can also be tied-in with improved site aesthetics, the projection of company image and enhanced communication with the public. The presentation illustrates key innovations with multi-media case studies.
