So you know all about the importance of mitigating noise pollution and protecting your employees and neighbours from harmful noise emissions. You did your homework. You’ve already read up on noise—you understand the safety aspects, the nature and behaviour of sound, and how noise control applies to your specific industry. Perhaps you’ve already incorporated noise control into your plans for your new or existing facility. Where do you go from here?
The first step in initiating a comprehensive noise control plan is to ask your friendly neighbourhood acoustical technicians to provide you with a quote for their services. In business jargon, this is known as an RFQ, or Request for Quote. Seems simple enough, doesn’t it? You locate a reputable acoustical engineering firm capable of meeting the needs of your project and see what they can offer you.
