Environmental science study on urban noise planning
The aim of this study is to collect best urban noise changes monitoring and planning practices around the world and to assess the possibility of their application in Canada and in particular in Montreal. In our Quebec context, it is not today possible to characterize the urban noise evolution over time because no precise and organized archives exist. The project aims first to identify the world organizations responsible for observing urban noise changes and then to collect monitoring, management and reduction of urban noise (direct or indirect) methods.
You can participate in the study by answering the following online questionnaire:
High Acoustic Quality of a Building – BAbel Method
BAbel is a method of evaluating the acoustic performance of a building. It ensures that all the acoustic details of a building are taken into account. Using the BAbel method is to ensure that the different spaces of a project have been designed for comfort and acoustic compliance. The method reviews all the possible aspects of acoustic and vibration transmissions (airborne, groundborne, hybrid, etc.) between the elements of a building in order to orient them towards the most suitable solutions. The interdependencies between the elements of a project and the different mitigation solutions are considered.
