Creating peace and quiet in the heart of Long Island City
Acoustics, Noise & Vibration
Our acoustics, noise, and vibration professionals provide full-service consulting for property, building, energy, and transportation projects throughout the United States. AKRF performs sound and vibration testing using the latest in acoustical instrumentation, architectural and interior design studies, MEP systems assessment, and state-of-the-art computer modeling. We provide full-service design from conceptual plans to construction documents, and a range of construction administration and inspection/verification services. We also perform audio/sound simulation to help clients ‘experience’ the sounds inside a planned building during the design phase.
Our professionals are well-versed in the entire range of federal, state, and local noise regulations. We have been asked to review and revise various noise codes, including the New York City Noise Control Code. We have also written recommendations for the New York City Department of Buildings code section on sound transmission and mechanical equipment. AKRF is a member of the National Council of Acoustical Consultants and a certified provider of AIA continuing education credits.
