Don’t spoil your city – manage urban noise

Urban noise management is a major concern for politicians, urban planners and municipal officials. The tasks involved in managing noise includes solving noise complaints, noise mapping and policing noise limits, as well as noise abatement and zoning. Reports must be made, actions taken and the public must be kept informed.

“Noise management changes a city. Knowing this, we are taking action and are working with Brüel & Kjær to improve the quality of life for all the people of Madrid and its visitors” Plácido Perera, Director of Acoustic Control, Department of Madrid Council
