Recent enhancements at WSP USA that will improve the wellbeing of people in the built environment has the firm making a little noise.
As little noise as possible, actually.
The WSP Air and Noise Services group is providing public and private clients with a full slate of air quality and noise/vibration expertise that have a direct effect on people in their everyday lives.
“The services offered by our group are key elements in a sustainable and environmentally sound project,” said Alice Lovegrove, national director of the Air and Noise Practice at WSP. “Our air quality and noise services help to ensure that a project is built and operates according to applicable standards and regulations.”
The public is becoming more aware of environmental issues and the impact they can have on their own quality of life, whether it is the exhaust fumes from a nearby highway, or construction noises from a neighboring building.
“As of late, the air quality, noise and vibration impacts of construction activities have become an increasing concern,” Lovegrove said. “In the past, the concern was mainly with project operations, and construction was written-off as a temporary impact. This is no longer the case, especially with mega-projects that take years to build.”
WSP Air and Noise is a national service group located in eight cities throughout the U.S., and available to private and public clients who are working with WSP on a myriad of projects. The leadership team includes Alice Lovegrove as the national director, Michael McKibben as the director of Environment, and Steven Paquette, WSP president of Water and Environment.
The Air and Noise group is part of WSP’s efforts to help clients become Future Ready™—to think beyond the conventional and prepare for the changes and challenges the world will face, and improve the overall quality of life through thoughtful approaches and awareness of the positive impacts we can create within the built environment.
