A B Foods
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was appointed to undertake a noise assessment at a large food manufacturing facility in Leigh. This assessment was requested by the Local Authority to support a planning application for a new extraction fan and odour control plant.
Amazon Warehouse
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was appointed to undertake an assessment of internal noise levels within the main warehouse and associated office spaces due to the operation of 14 AHU and a large kitchen extract fan located externally around the perimeter of the building.
Bachem
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was appointed by a biotechnology firm in St Helens to investigate a noise complaint relating to an extraction system and exhaust stack located close to a nearby housing estate. Although noise control measures in the form of an acoustic enclosure had already been installed around a noisy extract fan, it was evident that gaps between panels were allowing noise to escape from the enclosure. Furthermore, noise from the exhaust stack propagated freely to nearby dwellings.
Birtenshaw School
Birtenshaw School is a school for children with special educational needs in Bromley Cross, Bolton. Miller Goodall was appointed by the design team to undertake an acoustic review of the proposed partitioning systems of the new school building. The new school has been built in the field adjacent to the old school. The finished school needed to comply with Approved Document Part E of the Building Regulations 2000; the most common way of demonstrating compliance with AD Part E is to satisfy the performance requirements of Building Bulletin 93 (BB93) Acoustic Design of Schools.
Chatburn Road
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was asked to provide technical advice on noise and vibration for a plot of land proposed for 10 residential properties, next to a large mineral quarry outside Clitheroe. The application had been refused planning permission due to concerns that the development would place a constraint on the quarry and effectively prevent the extraction of minerals. The advice was to be used to inform a public planning inquiry.
Coldalhurst Lane
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was appointed to undertake a noise impact assessment to determine the suitability of a site for a proposed residential development. An outline planning application, comprising up to 300 residential dwellings and associated landscaping, was to be submitted for a green-field area located on land to the south of Coldalhurst Lane, Astley.
Holy Cross Sixth Form College
Holy Cross is a Catholic Sixth Form College and University Centre on Manchester Road in Bury, Greater Manchester. Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was appointed to undertake acoustic design duties for a new 3 storey teaching block and chapel. The development required a BREEAM rating of Very Good, and in order to achieve the relevant acoustic credits, the acoustic performance requirements of Hea 13 and Pol 8 within BREEAM Education 2008 were targeted. This required careful consideration of the impact of the design on acoustics to achieve the relevant criteria for indoor ambient noise levels, sound insulation between acoustically sensitive spaces and reverberation times in teaching rooms.
Junction 7
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was appointed to undertake a noise assessment in relation to the redevelopment of a site used for warehousing, offices and various industrial activities. The site was bordered by other industrial and commercial units to the east, residential development to the north and open fields to the west and south east. A hotel was located approximately 250m to the south west of the site.
Knauf Insulation
Miller Goodall Ltd (MGL) was approached to undertake extensive field testing for a large, multi-national manufacturer of building construction materials. This was part of a research project funded by the manufacturer to quantify the effect of the addition of low density insulating fillers on the thermal and sound insulation properties of separating walls in existing social housing stock constructed circa 1950.
