Acoustic consultancy professionals gathered online to see first-hand examples of innovation from across the sector in the Association of Noise Consultants annual awards programme.
In line with Covid-19 restrictions, the ANC’s Acoustic Awards were held in a virtual format.
For eight years the ANC, the voice of professional consultancy in acoustics, noise and vibration, has held the awards to promote and recognise excellence among UK acoustic consultants.
This year the awards showcased the skills of members across four categories, with a distinguished panel of judges – comprising of academics and professionals, as well as representatives from the sponsor companies – scrutinising the entries.
Paul Shields, Chair of ANC, said: “This was an awards’ event like no other for the ANC, but the online approach worked well.
“We were able to see examples of the unique skills of our acoustic, noise and vibration professionals, through video and written case studies, which gave a great deal of depth to the content of the event.”
