About

Since 1988, Wakefield Acoustics Ltd. has provided consulting engineering services aimed at delivering practical solutions for a broad range of acoustical design and environmental/community and occupational noise-related challenges.  Our projects range from the small and personal (e.g., residential heat pump noise control, acoustical privacy and footstep noise control in condominiums) to the large and public (acoustic design and noise impact assessment and control for major infrastructure projects such as highways, airports, schools and hospitals).

Over six decades of collective experience in both the public and private sectors has provided our staff with comprehensive knowledge of the technical, social and political complexities of dealing with noise in today’s world.  This knowledge encompasses the concerns and needs of those exposed to noise, those who make noise and those charged with regulating and/or controlling it.

Wakefield Acoustics Ltd. is committed to staying abreast of advances in acoustical science and technology as well as the relevant regulatory requirements.  Our clients benefit from our use of state-of-the art noise monitoring and analysis equipment and acoustics modeling software – tools that permit us to provide our services efficiently and accurately.

Acoustical consulting is a field in which the best solutions are often found where scientific and technological considerations intersect with human perception and sensitivity.  As a result, assessment approaches and control solutions are generally not of the “one-size-fits-all” variety.  Wakefield Acoustics Ltd endeavours to understand the unique interests and concerns of its clients and to provide services and design solutions that best address their particular challenges.
