The Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB)
The Metropolitan Fire Brigade provides services to almost 3 million Melbourne residents, workers and visitors in the metro region, safeguarding lives, assets and infrastructure.
The MFB were planning an upgrade to the Bundoora Station, including the construction of a new office and sleeping areas. They were concerned that noise levels within their new buildings would be too high due to the major road adjacent to the site.
Acoustic Performance Testing and a Traffic Noise Intrusion Assessment
JTA were consulted to provide design and construction recommendations to ensure internal acoustics were kept within the client’s expectations. We conducted acoustic performance testing of the building structure, along with a traffic intrusion noise assessment that took into account relevant guidelines and legislation. From these tests, we were able to develop specific design criteria to minimise noise, with detailed advice on suitable façade, glazing, doors and mechanical ventilation.
