Predict and assess noise impacts of new and existing facilities
A fast, accurate and clearly explained Noise Impact Assessment (NIA) is critical when designing a facility, seeking approval during the application phase or establishing mutual expectations with land owners.
Patching Associates specializes in collaborating with all stakeholders at all phases of your project to deliver practical, actionable and cost-effective noise mitigation recommendations.
We’ve performed thousands of Noise Impact Assessments and know what it takes to comply.

Why Choose Patching Associates for Your NIA Needs?
Precise Modeling and Analysis
Our assessments range from single point sources to complex 3D modeled sources for all types of sites and equipment. We tailor the level of detail to meet project requirements.
Modeling can be done using theoretical data (for future projects), measured data (on operational equipment) or with information from our extensive database of past measurements.
High detail (diagnostic) or low detail (fenceline reconnaissance) sound measurements ensure that the level of detail is adapted to the project to optimize NIA costs.
Personal and Professional Team
We’re a large team of consultants backed by experienced acoustical engineers and a dedicated field team.
You’ll be provided with a dedicated project manager for every project, enabling us to move quickly and effectively to solve noise challenges.
Clear and Actionable Recommendations
We provide detailed reporting and analysis that is easily understood by all stakeholders. Our recommendations can be used to obtain competitive bids on noise control upgrades, allowing for apples-to-apples quote evaluation.
