Turbine Blade Manufacturers, IoW

Southdowns’ was commissioned to design and execute specialist occupational noise and spatial dust surveys within its two main production halls, as part of its on-going commitment to the management of risk and occupational health and safety at its turbine manufacturing premises on the Isle of Wight. Real time measurements of PM10 respirable particulates, PM2. 5 particulates and PM1 concentrations were taken across the shop floor. Values were used to create a spatial distribution model of airborne particulates and were compared against exposure limits, allowing the client to assess the effectiveness of ventilation systems. Sample noise and dust exposures were obtained...

Crossrail C510 Whitechapel and Liverpool Street Station Tunnels

This project is the 2018 Association of Noise Consultants ( ANC ) Award Winner in the Environmental Noise Category. Southdowns was appointed as the noise and vibration specialists by the Balfour Beatty BeMO Alpine Morgan Sindall Vinci Joint Venture ( BBMV JV) in 2011 to manage the contractor’s requirements with respect to noise and vibration. The C510 contract is widely regarded by the project as one of the more complex tunnelling packages due in part to the close proximity of residential and non-residential noise and vibration sensitive receptors to the main tunnel support worksites. The total value of the contract...

Receptor noise measurements

Newhaven Port

Southdowns was commissioned by H Ripley & Co to undertake source term and receptor noise measurements to construct a calibrated noise model. The model was used to predict the acoustic benefit of a number of noise mitigation options to inform a cost benefit analysis of each option during loading of the scrap pile and boat, at a scrap metal storage and export facility. Southdowns was selected due to its expertise in noise modelling and optioneering of optimum mitigation strategies with the best value. Southdowns familiarity with waste loading and port operational processes, local acoustic environment and previous involvement on compliance...
