Robert Osborne of ANC, which represents the voice of professional consultancy in acoustics, noise and vibration in the UK, said:

“They promote high standards, good practice and reflect the good work of our members in improving acoustics for the whole of society.


“The awards programme also supports our ongoing work, demonstrated through our #ExploreAcoustics campaign, to promote the career opportunities available in the industry to a wider audience, particular in relation to STEM subjects.”
