Our Excel Student, Felicia, gives her thoughts on this year’s House Festival where the dBx team supported NMSP to monitor and control event noise levels…
This amazing event was held at Marble Hill House, London on 7th July. It consisted of different kind of entertainments, mouth-watering foods (imagine the big lobster!), desserts and also different kinds of cocktails which make this summer more energetic and fantastic!
The event location was surrounded by residential areas. As acoustic consultants, we were there to help to monitor the noise level arising in the surrounding area due to the event, especially from the live music throughout the day and evening. Our role was to monitor and ensure that noise levels remained within the limit agreed with the Local Authority.
It was a great summer experience for us: keep track, record the noise levels and constantly report to the main desk; understand the importance of the role and how noise levels are kept within the limit for such big event; last but not least, had tons of great free foods, drinks and live music while working!
