Noise affects us all, in the home, at work, at school, etc. For any new measure, noise conditions should be considered and it should be examined whether it is possible to build in such a way that e.g. homes are exposed to less noise.
Mapping of noise is the theme in zoning cases, in impact assessments, in real estate development etc. We calculate noise maps showing the noise distribution from roads/railways or fixed installations on the site in question, and we examine the consequences of different routes for roads or railway tracks. We examine the consequences of a noise barrier and we can assess the consequences of the noise barrier being sound-absorbing, different heights etc. The main purpose of noise mapping is to provide predictability and good information for the planners. We have our own range of machinery that is dedicated to noise mapping, so that the computation time will be as fast as possible. 20 computers are dedicated to this role and, for large and complex computational tasks, this may equate to days saved in calculation time.
