Sharps Acoustics LLP

We are an acoustic consultancy that provides advice on environmental noise and vibration issues, particularly within the development planning sector.

As is illustrated by the consultants’ profiles, the experience and ability of the consultants within the partnership are considerable and complementary; the result is the ability to provide comprehensive and informed advice of the highest quality.

We concentrate on environmental impact assessments, the results of which are typically employed within assessment reports, Environmental Statements, proofs of evidence to inquiry, and expert reports to the courts. We operate in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors, both for operational sites and for development planning. We have provided advice on some of the largest infrastructure, industrial and commercial projects in the UK, but are equally at home advising on a site proposed for a single dwelling or helping a private individual with a noise issue.

We are based at offices in Oxfordshire (Ian), and Suffolk (Doug). We have the ability to travel nationwide covering all areas of the UK. We have extensive technical capabilities, including the use of precision noise and vibration measurement equipment, 3-dimensional computer modelling software and complex data analysis tools. We pride ourselves on explaining complex theory in simple, understandable terms, and on our “real world” approach to acoustics.

The overarching objective of the partners is to provide carefully considered advice in a clear, objective and pragmatic way.
