Hopkinton MA

Original Noise Problem
A large emergency generator was installed for an expansion project, which resulted in excessive noise levels affecting the surrounding neighborhood.

Solutions/Materials Used
SVA provided and installed sound barrier panels to create an acoustical enclosure around the generator. The resulting noise level was successfully reduced from 85 to 55 decibels to meet the town of Hopkinton’s noise ordinance.
