The project´s objective 

The project was divided into two parts.

First, traffic noise calculations were made along with a rough estimate on the sound reduction of facade walls and windows. Following the calculations, the buildings were categorized based on the likelihood of whether indoor noise levels from traffic noise would exceed boundaries or not.

In the second place, inspections of buildings were performed as well as calculations on indoor noise levels from traffic noise, with design of noise control measures where needed.

Environmental issues

Noise from traffic and noise control measures established.

Noise assessment were made according to Norwegian regulation: Forurensnings-forskriften FOR-2004-06-01 nr. 931.
