The quality of our living environment is determined in large measure by noise and noise nuisance caused by sources like industry, infrastructure and economic activity. For many years Witteveen+Bos has been advising on how to prevent noise nuisance. Among other things we conduct studies into noise produced by infrastructure, industry and recreation and ways of mitigating it. Our recommendations are typically incorporated into integral projects, such as those undertaken for environmental impact reports, licences and spatial planning.

Advanced technology figures prominently in our field of work. Good examples are forecasting models that enable us even in highly complex situations to provide a picture of the likely acoustical situation and the effects of noise-abating measures. We cooperate closely with our clients, including all levels of government, urban planning/traffic science consultancies and project developers.
