Three Sixty Design Solutions has launched acoustic consultancy services to help clients manage sound and vibration issues.
The multi-disciplinary property company, which has offices in London and Chichester, is providing the specialist service in building, environmental and infrastructure acoustics.
The new offering will complement the 30-strong firm’s services in architecture, building surveying, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and fire engineering, specialist surveying, project management and contract administration.
Its acoustic expertise covers the entire project spectrum from inception to completion in multiple sectors including residential, commercial, industrial, office, health and education.
Gareth Pryce, Managing Director at Three Sixty Design Solutions, said: “All noise sensitive or noise generating development has the potential to impact upon our world and requires consideration from the outset.
“Sound issues are becoming increasing important at all stages of the project life cycle whether in terms of compliance and regulation or in the drive to realise sustainable, cost-effective and higher quality developments.
“Effective acoustic control can make developments viable which may not have been possible otherwise due to their location, sensitivity or unique circumstances while allowing economically critical schemes to proceed in a tightening regulatory landscape.
“Introducing acoustic design and engineering capabilities to our portfolio of services capitalises on the longstanding expertise of our team and allows us to meet increasing client demand for this specialist area of support.
“It means we can introduce bespoke noise and vibration control into the fabric of buildings at the earliest design opportunity as well as deliver retrofitted solutions during refurbishment or regeneration of existing structures.”
Three Sixty Design Solutions’ acoustic services cover the survey, architecture, design, engineering and build phases of developments.
With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.
UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.
The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.
The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
