Every sector has its own challenges when it comes to acoustics, air quality, noise, vibration, odour and dust. That’s why our in-depth experience of working on a broad range of projects over many years reaps rewards when it comes to finding creative and pragmatic solutions.

Commercial & Retail

Whilst safety and comfort in modern commercial and retail developments is of paramount importance, successful acoustic solutions in contemporary office layouts or large atrium shopping spaces demand a creative approach built on decades of expertise.


Our collaborative approach to providing industry-leading solutions is the foundation of how we work on projects in the education sector, tailoring our advice to meet the scheme’s specific requirements, both in terms of acoustic modelling, noise control and supporting planning issues.


Following many years of delivering successful and pragmatic acoustic solutions in healthcare settings, we are widely recognised as the foremost authority in the UK and were appointed lead authors of the Department of Health’s Acoustic Design Guide.


Hotels aim to offer guests a comfortable and restful experience but for convenience, they are often located near busy roads or airports, enhancing the importance of intelligent design solutions for acoustics and air quality.


Our in-depth experience of delivering acoustic solutions in the housing sector means we can offer advice throughout all phases of the building process, from site acquisition and planning, to the design, construction and testing of the completed project.


Industrial projects can pose a major challenge. Solutions need to protect both the workforce and surrounding neighbours from various sources of noise and vibration, with acoustic strategies that provide the right balance between managing the issues and allowing work to continue.

Leisure & Performance Venues

With experience of working on more than 100 leisure schemes and providing bespoke acoustic solutions for live performance arenas, bingo halls, bowling alleys, cinemas, ice rinks, indoor funfairs, night clubs and theatres, we are in an ideal position to deliver practical, hands-on advice to this sector.

Student Accommodation

The creation of new student accommodation by universities and colleges, as well as third-party providers, has increased dramatically in recent years. In the last 12 months, our team has worked on projects involving over 10,000 rooms, requiring innovative approaches to deliver acoustic solutions on-time and on-budget.


Our provision of support within the infrastructure sector has expanded hugely over the years, with successful solutions for a range of nationally-renowned projects, both large and small. Our team is widely respected in the industry for delivering excellent acoustic strategies for major city, railway, highway and tunnelling projects.

Flood Defence/Climate Change

The effect of climate change on our environment has impacted on rivers and reservoirs, in some cases necessitating the construction of flood barriers to protect local communities. SRL’s infrastructure team has specialist experience in supporting these projects with acoustic testing and monitoring.


Over the years we have worked on various Defence projects throughout the UK. In some locations, our work was classified but less sensitive schemes we have been involved with include helping with the acoustic design of new accommodation blocks, reviewing noise and vibration from large plant/equipment installations, designing operation/control rooms and protecting facilities from aircraft noise break-in. We are familiar with working to both British and American acoustic standards.
