New appointments strengthen Acoustic team

Business | Press | News

Acoustic Associates, Peterborough-based noise and vibration consultants, has taken on two new specialist engineers to help meet the rising demand for its consultancy services.

Acoustic Associates, which was formed in 1990, provides noise and vibration consultancy for a wide range of organisations including manufacturing companies and local authorities. It is one of just 33 UK organisations accredited to carry out acoustic testing on buildings to meet the new Building Regulations Document E section. The new appointments will help the company extend its expertise in this area.

Andrew Nash and Simon Weller have been taken on by the company as noise and vibration engineers to help meet the increased demand to assess the acoustic performance of buildings such as houses and schools, which are affected by the Regulations.

Roy Pettitt, one of the partners of Acoustic Associates, said: "As one of only 33 consultancies accredited to carry out acoustic testing for Building Regulations Document E section, the company's workload has been growing steadily. Andy and Simon have been taken on to free up the time of our accredited testers and help the company take on more consultancy work. We are delighted to have them both on board and look forward to helping them with their career progression."

Andrew Nash (26) is a graduate of York University where he completed a Masters degree in electronic engineering with music technology. Following his graduation, Andrew conducted a year-long research project into advanced methods of representing acoustic spaces in software. In his position at Acoustic Associates, Andrew will specialise in using CATT acoustic modelling software to analyse noise.

"I am delighted to have joined the team at Acoustic Associates. I was originally attracted by the variety offered by the post and saw this as an ideal first industry-based job," said Andrew.

"Specialising in the CATT acoustic software means that I will be working on architectural projects to analyse sound and improve acoustic performance."

Simon Weller (32) has taken up the position at Acoustic Associates following a two-year spell travelling and working as an acoustic consultant in Australia. Having previously worked for large organisations in the construction industry such as Balfour Beatty, Simon gained his experience as a specialist in acoustics while working as an environmental advisor. He has worked on a number of high profile projects such as the Channel Tunnel rail link and the Parramatta rail link in Australia and benefits from a degree in engineering and environmental studies and a diploma in acoustics and noise control.

"I have always worked for large organisations and have specialised in only one or two areas of noise and vibration control," explained Simon. "At Acoustic Associates I am able to use a broader range of my knowledge and get involved with a number of different aspects of a project. I hope that my role at Acoustic Associates will enable me to broaden my environmental, industrial and construction experience."

The new appointments take the company's workforce up to six, with four further associate consultancies based across the UK.
