Established in 2012, ACA Acoustics’ core principles are to offer you great customer service, high-quality technical advice that is easy to understand, and practical sustainable solutions, all at competitive prices.

Our clients include international coffee shop chains, national restaurant brands, fast-growing fitness gym groups, large housebuilders, and well-known bars and clubs, as well as countless smaller companies and individuals in most sectors of industry. Almost all our business comes from returning clients or word-of-mouth recommendations and is testimony to the personal service we offer all our clients, from the largest to the smallest.

Due to our ongoing success we now operate from our head office in Highworth, Wiltshire and our London office. Although work is primarily carried out within London, Bristol, and the South, we regularly work on projects all over the UK, from Scotland to the Channel Islands, and further afield.

We understand that you are already very busy and that projects are often accompanied by short programme timescales and tight budgets. By commissioning ACA Acoustics you can have the confidence that your acoustic challenges will be resolved on time, to the highest technical standards, and using imaginative and cost-effective solutions.

Our Services

Noise Assessments
ACA Acoustics are experienced in undertaking all manner of noise assessments, having successfully completed projects all over the UK and further afield. Noise assessments are a catch-all term and could relate to an acoustic assessment and report in support of a planning application or internal acoustic design within a new development and more.

Acoustic Design
Poor acoustic design can blight a new development, resulting in complaints by occupiers, lack of productivity and extensive costs and delays while undertaking remedial works. Whether it is excessive echo within an open atrium, lack of privacy between cellular offices or meeting rooms or noise from building services equipment.

ACA Acoustics have provided acoustic consultancy for planning applications from large residential and mixed-use developments to the installation of a single new air conditioning condenser. We work with architects, planning consultants, developers, and contractors and as a result we understand how acoustic assessments fit into the planning process.

Building Services
Mechanical ventilation and heating/cooling systems are a common feature in many buildings. From Air Handling Units, Fan Coil Units (FCU), or chillers serving commercial offices, kitchen extract fans to a restaurant, or heat recovery units (MVHR) serving modern residential apartments.

Noise Surveys
Determining existing background sound levels for the assessment of mechanical services equipment, internal commissioning noise surveys, investigating noise complaints, or setting noise limiters for music entertainment venues, we undertake noise surveys on almost every project we are involved in.

BREEAM Assessment
The Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) provides a set of standards and best practices for sustainable design, construction, and operation of new or refurbished development. Within the current BREEAM technical manuals the credits relating to noise are Hea 05 and Pol 05.

Vibration Surveys & Designs
Ground-borne vibration from external sources such as trains, structure-borne vibration from building services equipment, or activities within adjoining properties such as a bowling alley or weights being dropped in a fitness gym can cause significant disturbance to occupants and in extreme cases even result in structural damage to the building.

Noise Mapping
Computerised noise maps are a powerful tool which allows the impact of proposed development to be calculated over a wide area and to multiple receptors simultaneously. It is said that a picture paints a thousand words, and print-outs from noise mapping software can also be extremely useful in demonstrating to a lay person how a development will influence nearby noise-sensitive occupants, for example in support of contentious or large-scale planning applications.

Sound Insulation Testing
Sound insulation testing most commonly refers to pre-completion testing (PCT) between residential houses or flats, required to demonstrate compliance with Approved Document E of The Building Regulations for new-build dwellings or those formed by material change of use.
