SRL’s Acoustic Consultancy team is expanding.

SRL’s Acoustic Consultancy team is expanding.

SRL is one of the largest independent acoustic consultancies in the UK. Most of our work is associated with exciting projects in the construction industry – either designing buildings or managing the impact of construction sites. We get involved with just about any type of building and infrastructure project you can think of, plus some you probably can’t! We are becoming increasingly busy thanks to our strong client relationships, market understanding and ability to recognise new opportunities and we are keen to recruit more high-quality Consultants to expand our team.  Our acoustic consultancy has been established for over half a century and we are proud to have contributed to a long and varied list of major projects across the UK and the rest of the world.

Our team brings a wealth of experience to every project, whether it be planning, performance prediction, design, inspection, troubleshooting, measurement or commissioning.  We have developed an industry-leading approach to acoustic consultancy and provide independent support on anything where noise or vibration is an issue using the latest measurement equipment and computer modelling programs.
