The Challenge:

To solve the problem of floor, wall and window rattling coming from a health facility over a kilometre away.

The Innovation:

When vibrations were causing complaints of floor, wall and window rattling, we were retained by Trans-Alta for noise mitigation due to excessive low frequency noise coming from the Ottawa Health Sciences Co Generation Facility (OHSC). We solved the problem by designing and installing an Outdoor Active Noise Reduction system. The noise complaints stopped immediately and this system has been in place for 30 years now.

This project also won us a National Award of Excellence from the Association of Consulting Engineers in Canada.
