A greater emphasis on airborne sound outdoors is also included, with new categories for both environmental infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects introduced.

 

Judges comprising of a panel of academics, professionals, and representatives from sponsor companies will study the entries.

 

The winners will be announced at a ceremony following the ANC National Conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Manchester City Centre, on June 6.

-       Building Acoustics, sponsored by H & H Acoustic Technologies

-       Education Acoustics, sponsored by Ecophon

-       Environmental Acoustics (Infrastructure), sponsored by ANV Measurement Systems

-       Environmental Acoustics (Non-Infrastructure), sponsored by Bruel & Kjaer Ltd

-       Good Acoustic Design

-       Smaller Consultancies

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

“The ANC Awards recognise projects that most effectively demonstrate a pioneering or innovative method, application, technique or solution to a particular problem from across our membership.

 

“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.”
