Our Acoustics Team Take Their Entertainment Noise Seminar to Newcastle

Following on from a successful event in Manchester, our Acoustics Team hosted another Entertainment Noise seminar in Newcastle at the end of November.

Technical Director Simon Urquhart hosted the event, with fellow acousticians, planners, environmental health officers and developers in attendance at the stylish venue of Bealim House. After enjoying a drink and delicious buffet over informal networking, Simon introduced the speakers; Regional Director Jon Fox, Principal Acoustic Consultant Richard Calvert and Senior Acoustic Consultant Edward Goldsmith.

Speakers were asked to raise their noise levels to ensure sufficient speech intelligibility.
