Acoustic Design of Theatres, Performance Spaces, Halls and Places of Worship
The legacy of a space is dictated by its acoustic design and optimization. Get the results you need in creating a legacy that your community will enjoy and be proud of for many generations. Acoustic optimization of strength, warmth, reverberation, early energy, clarity, speech intelligibility and aesthetics will be realized by bringing us in early in the design process. We will deliver the necessary engineering detail and instruction needed for the acoustic and vibration isolation necessary for compatibility with factors such as adjacent multi-use spaces and nearby transportation. We will ensure that sound levels from mechanical, electrical and building services equipment meet the stringent standards that befit a world class facility. These factors will create a memorable space worthy of timeless accolades.
Architectural Noise and Vibration Control, Building Acoustics and Wellness
"Wellness" is making its way into building design. Vintec focuses on key influencers of wellness such as background sound level, speech privacy, sound and vibration isolation, interior acoustic treatment design and sound masking while paying particular attention to building vibration and structural dynamics. We ensure that best practices are implemented to address acoustic comfort in commercial spaces; and in multi-use buildings by considering mechanical equipment, recreational or health/fitness facilities located near acoustically sensitive residential condominiums, offices or healthcare facilities. Our staff has extensive experience in resolving noise and vibration issues that can arise from mechanical equipment, high-level playback of high performance sound systems and the potential excitation of structures by human activity or other factors.
Environmental Noise and Vibration Permitting and Compliance
Our Team will evaluate your environmental permitting
requirements to comply with local Guidelines and Regulations for successful procurement of Environmental Approvals. We prepare the technical analysis, acoustic modelling and
documentation to support approval. Vintec also has extensive experience in acoustic audit work to address permit approval conditions and for site commissioning. Vintec engineers will also develop and project manage an environmental noise abatement plan as part of a facility’s objective for environmental noise compliance. This includes the design of state of the art controls such as active noise control, custom silencers and any special consideration for vibration control. We will also manage the tender process for the design build and installation of unique and innovative noise and vibration control solutions.
Environmental Noise and Vibration Assessment in Land Use Planning and Municipal Approvals
Vintec Acoustics is focused and devoted to solving complex acoustical, noise and vibration challenges in land use planning and Municipal approvals. This ranges from the preparation of noise and vibration impact studies to support approvals for site plan controls, rezoning, zoning by-law amendment and Peer review of same in accordance with Municipal and Provincial Guidelines. Vintec Acoustics also has extensive experience in the development of Municipal Noise policy; namely for developing appropriate and robust guidelines related to noise and vibration and evaluation of setbacks between sensitive lands, developments, industrial areas as well as sound barrier retrofit and resource area protection policies. Vintec staff have also appeared as expert witnesses before consolidated board and environmental review panels.
Building Condition Assessment for Code Compliance and TARION B 19 Certification
If a building is being repurposed or renovated, we provide an assessment of the sound and vibration challenges and more importantly identify and recommend effective solutions for executing a successful project.
For new construction, we review and certify construction drawings as required by TARION BULLETIN 19R. Vintec has extensive experience in testing the as-built condition for compliance with respective Code, best practices and applicable ordinance requirements.
Sound and Vibration Measurement and Monitoring Services
Vintec Acoustics has extensive experience collecting and analyzing sound and vibration data ranging from outdoor events and music concerts to construction and demolition near heritage structures. Our monitoring systems have also been deployed to assist our clients in industrial operations, power generation, waste management, aggregate production and mining in tracking and documentation of any environmental noise concerns. Our experienced and resourceful staff is able to custom assemble and install measurement systems for long term multi-site data acquisition with remote monitoring capability for live real time verification of compliance with specified contractual limits and/or established noise and vibration criteria.
Machinery Vibration, Flow Induced Vibration and Structural Dynamics
Vintec engineers and technicians have been highly successful in dealing with design and operational issues in major mechanical equipment such as industrial gas turbine engines. This work has involved bench testing for establishing dynamic behaviour of structures and components for predicting the potential onset of failure such as high cycle fatigue cracking. In the area of industrial machinery vibration, Vintec has a strong reputation and is regularly called upon to diagnose and determine root cause in severe systemic vibration problems and for arriving at value engineered solutions to ensure long term operating viability.
Industrial Noise and Vibration Assessment and Engineered Controls
Occupational settings in manufacturing, food and beverage plants, public utilities, shipping, construction sites, and industrial and loud commercial settings can cause adverse health effects to employees as a result of potentially excessive exposure to noise and vibration. Vintec staff will evaluate existing conditions and establish the degree of risk to an employer and suggest remedial action to minimize or eliminate the risk. As part of this work, Vintec engineers will conduct the necessary machinery diagnostic work, provide noise and vibration management programs, develop engineered noise and vibration controls and solutions for a multitude of noise and vibration scenarios to ensure wellness in the work place.
Mediation, Expert Witness and Testimony Services
We have presented evidence on many occasions before various reviewing agencies, consolidated boards, environmental assessment panels, public meetings and in court. Our 30+ years of experience in a broad range of noise and vibration challenges are available to be called upon when there is a requirement to technically support or to formulate a rebuttal for the approval of a given application or interpretation of contractual requirements. In each case, we would assemble a scientifically based objective case, examine and monitor evidence and support negotiations in mediation hearings to ensure that scientific principals and common sense are collectively upheld.
Acoustics, Vibration and Electro-acoustic Product Design and R&D
Quiet acoustic design of new products and processes is in line with the increased attention that today’s world is paying to its desire for both sound quality and a quiet soundscape.
This ranges from creating advancements for high performance loudspeaker systems to low noise and vibration in heavy industrial equipment, private business jets and in commercial or household appliances. Vintec staff is committed to the research and development of low noise technologies and are able to also help you investigate the essential technical steps necessary for the development of your "quiet"’ product.
