Why use me?
Industry experience and knowledge
I was Auckland Council’s contracted specialist soundproofing inspector for 12 years (2004 -2016), doing the final inspection on the council’s inner-city highrise apartment buildings.
I have personally performed over 10,000 soundproofing measurements and tests on New Zealand’s low- and highrise apartment buildings.
Qualified – and insured – to model and certify in acoustics and noise control
I did the Postgraduate Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control of the Institute of Acoustics (UK) when I was living in London in my late 20s. This included architectural acoustics, sound measurement techniques, transportation noise, noise control engineering, vibration.
I did further Institute of Acoustics UK postgraduate modules in environmental noise modelling and in regulatory noise practices in 2012 (merit passes).
Technology resources and knowledge
I own and use the latest available specialist ground information services modelling software, environmental noise modelling software and architectural soundproofing modelling software daily.
I also draw on my 30 years’ worth of accumulated specialist building soundproofing testing equipment and knowledge weekly on construction sites across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.
