About Us

BUILD Magazine Acoustic Consultant of the Year 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Experts in building acoustic design and environmental noise assessment.

Acoustic Consultant and Designer

dBx Acoustics Ltd provides acoustic consultancy and acoustic design services to clients nationwide, including InterserveJarvis HomesCarillionMorrisons and Bruntwood. We also work with architects, planning and environmental consultancies as well as private individuals and government agencies. You can read some feedback from our clients here and download our brochure, as well as reviewing a selection of project case studies.

Our aim is to create aurally beautiful spaces, whether inside or out. Although much of the acoustic consultant’s work is ‘problem-solving’, we are keen to educate architects, clients and developers so that more people appreciate the positive benefits to health and wellbeing (as well as to productivity and profitability) that appropriate acoustic design can bring to all projects.

Professional, Reliable Service

All of our consultants hold or are studying towards qualifications in acoustics, and are members of the Institute of Acoustics.

We take our responsibilities to our clients and to our environment seriously and have achieved certification in BS EN ISO 9001 and BS EN ISO 14001. You can read our Quality Policy and Environmental Policy to learn more. We are also UKAS Accredited for pre completion acoustic testing on residential properties.

Awards and Recognition

As we enter our sixth year, we have plenty to celebrate. BUILD Magazine named us Acoustic Consultancy of the Year for 2015, 2016 and 2017. We were awarded “Young Business of the Year” at the 2016 One Oldham Business Awards and won a Scoot Headline Award in 2015.  Our Director has also been recognised by Building Magazine as one of the rising stars of the construction industry. In December 2013, less that one year after opening, we were invited to attend a reception at Downing Street recognising successful small businesses.
