We strive to contribute to our community. We support each other in our own development and we extend this support to others around us. We welcome applications for work experience and student placements, and have previously welcomed both local school pupils and international post-graduate students.
We contribute to our industry by giving our time freely to the Association of Noise Consultants, where Jack sits on the main Board and several committees, by making presentations of our work at national and international conferences, and local branch meetings of the Institute of Acoustics.
We won’t be asking you to sponsor our ambitious bike rides and other adventures (although we love doing these things), because we believe that our professional expertise is our most valuable asset with which to assist others.
We provide our services on a pro-bono basis for charities and not-for-profit groups wherever possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can assist you in this way. Examples of our work in this context includes:
St Anthony of Padua Community Association
