Avoid costly delays, complaints, and disruptions with the help of proven specialists.
We all rely on power to work and live – but unwanted sound from power generation can strain relationships between industry and community.
Patching Associates works with operators, engineering firms, landowners and regulators involved with proposed and existing power generation facilities. We deliver Noise Impact Assessments (NIA’s) and noise control engineering solutions that consider area stakeholders. Our assessments are backed by reliable data and decades of industry experience.
We use sophisticated software to create a precise 3D model for all types of equipment. Our field assessments include detailed diagnostic measurements of sound sources, fence line measurements of area facilities and comprehensive sound level measurements at the residence.
We’ve meticulously refined our processes for managing and analyzing data to minimize turnaround time and revisions. We’ve been involved with the development of regulations for decades, giving us the ability to confidently navigate complex regulatory environments.
We have connections with many established vendors, so we can help you collect and evaluate multiple bids.
You can be confident you’re getting a cost-effective and appropriate solution for your needs.
An NIA that meets Alberta Utilities Commission’s Rule 012 is required by AUC Rule 007 – one of the most prescriptive regulations in Western Canada.
We’ll help you meet and exceed regulatory requirements, minimize the risk of complaints and proactively address issues during the design phase to save you from a costly retrofit.
