The integration of an industry within an urban district always brings sensitive issues along. When creating a new plant, or when the activity evolves, we help the industries to comply with their regulatory obligations, in optimum financial and environmental conditions.
As the case may be, we also assist all the professionals intervening in this type of works : engineering offices in technical and industrial equipment, building contractors.
Lastly, as accredited independent experts, we execute measurement surveys for public authorities in charge of the environment in the scope of legal procedures.
We assist the environmental, health and safety (EHS) manager at each step of its activity : development strategy, global validation of a project, regulatory compliance and management of operational impacts on the environment.
Before creating a new industrial site, we study various scenarios of operation so as to identify the best site settlement on acoustic criteria.
As a result of a sustained research and development policy as well as over 20 years of experience in the area, we propose a unique services offer, combining :
Methodology of analysis,
Benchmarking of the site,
Proprietary and/or public modelling softwares,
3D visualisation tools.
PROJECT VALIDATION : IMPACT ASSESSMENT STUDIES
Once a given location is selected, we validate the compatibility of the project with its overall environment by the means of impact assessment studies. Our mission is to check whether the project complies with both the building licence and the regulations.
With more than 100 references in impact assessment studies, we take part to the project as a real partner within a multidisciplinary team, working altogether in order to reach the final project validation.

In accordance with the applicable regulations, we set up noise maps, and make calculation and/or noise measurement surveys so as to check the actual compliance with the corresponding regulations. If necessary, we propose relevant adaptations in order to bring the plant to conformity.

MANAGEMENT OF OPERATIONAL IMPACTS
When facing complaints against the nuisance caused by the operation of the plant, we control the validity of these complaints.
To do so, we use our leading-edge measuring equipment.
In parallel, we identify possible improvements.

GENERAL ASSISTANCE AND ADVICE
Generally speaking, as consultants in acoustics, we help the environmental, health and safety (EHS) manager to understand its responsibilities in terms of environment.
When executing a project, we work in partnership with engineering offices on the technical specifications of the plant via studies of dimensioning, the joint drawing of specifications and tender offers, as well as the setting up of works plans in compliance with the acoustic constraints.
We bring a significant added value thanks to the tools we have developed : modelling softwares and references databases on plants previously studied.
Our main objective, at this stage, is to reach the best balance between quality, cost and long-term performances.
