Irwin Carr offers specialist services in the areas of environmental noise, architectural acoustics, air quality and underwater noise. Our experience in planning and licensing covers a broad range of areas from noise assessments of wind farms, agricultural developments through to industrial processes and commercial or residential developments.  We provide a range of complimentary services to address the noise and air quality impacts of existing and proposed developments.
We also have significant experience in the architectural acoustic design of commercial, education and residential buildings from the initial tender stage through to the commissioning/testing. We are registered with the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) for residential building pre-completion testing. We also have specialist skills in the measurement, prediction and assessment of underwater noise through our development of the dBSeas software package.  Our software development and distribution section provides support for software packages such as SoundPLAN, INSUL and SONarchitect used by consultancies worldwide.
