International Women in Engineering Day – Rosie Pitt, Senior Environmental Scientist

Senior Environmental Scientist, Rosie Pitt works in our Cardiff office within our Noise and Acoustics team. For International Women in Engineering Day 2017, she gives a brief description of a recent project that she has worked on in Cardiff.

Wardell Armstrong has been involved in the Housing Partnership Programme (HPP), working on several housing projects across Cardiff in multiple disciplines. I hold a diploma in acoustics and noise control, and produced a noise and vibration assessments for many of these projects, in particular, the Walker House development.

The Walker House development is located adjacent to a busy road and railway line. A noise and vibration assessment was therefore requested by the planning officer in order to support the planning application. A noise and vibration survey was carried out, followed by detailed data analysis to establish the relevant mitigation requirements on a plot by plot basis regarding all relevant guidance. The data analysis showed that vibration from the railway was insignificant and therefore no mitigation was considered necessary. Glazing, acoustic ventilation and acoustic screening were required with varying specifications throughout the site, depending on their proximity to the road and railway line. The final assessment was supported by the planning officer and planning permission was granted for the site.
