The project's objective

The purpose of the project was to get an overview of the sound environment caused by activities on the property.

EFLA's role

Both short-term and long-term noise measurements were carried out on the lot, to provide an overview of noise-level variations. The results from the measurements were entered into the SoundPLAN (noise prediction software) model.

Then the model was used to map the noise and sound level on the property's boundary, as well as to map the noise propagation within the company's lot.
