Choosing a consultancy firm for the noise control requirements of a building is a serious matter. A huge amount of money would go down the drain if you are not meticulous and careful in picking one from among the many choices out there.
To find the best partner for the acoustics aspect of your construction project, you have to consider these qualities when evaluating your prospects:
How long has it been in the business? Can it survive long enough to complete your project and be available to fine-tune any issue even when the project is over? Do your research and find out if the company has grown over the years. This will give you the assurance you’re not dealing with a fly-by-night firm who is just after
Good credit standing
This quality is extremely important because you do not want to entrust your noise control project and money to an acoustical consultancy that is on the brink of bankruptcy. Again, do your research and make sure that you will deal only with a consultancy firm that has a good credit history and financial health.
Extensive experience in acoustics
Inexperience has no place in the business of acoustics because doing it right leaves no room for mistakes and failures. Go with an experienced consultant with 10 or more years’ worth of industry know-how and skills.
Has worked on the same project as yours
Choose a firm that has specifically worked on the same project as yours. For example, if you are building a school auditorium, an acoustics consultancy that has worked on noise control for that kind of construction knows what the technicalities and best practices for that particular project.
Be thorough and wise when screening the potential acoustic experts to choose. When it comes to that, AEP Acoustics—with its vast experience, good credit history, and longevity in the business—is worth considering.
