The Dubai Noise Survey

Posted on 25 Mar 2015.

Environment Department at Dubai Municipality in cooperation with M/s. Vibrocomp ME started the project Noise Study in the Emirate of Dubai which is considered as one of the strategic projects in the Emirate. 
The project includes a detailed study of the noise generated from airports, metro and road traffic, industries, construction and other noise sources. The scope of the project is besides noise mapping the Emirate, to conduct a survey to find out more about the individual perception of Dubai residents on noise.

The survey takes only 10 minutes to answer.

Your feedback is important in our vision to create an excellent city that provides the essence of success and comfort of sustainable living.

The survey can be reached through Dubai Municipality’s official webpage or directly from the following link:

Participants successfully finished The First Noise Mapping Training!

Posted on 28 Oct 2014.

The First Professional Noise Mapping Training was held by Vibrocomp last week. Beside the large number of attendants from Dubai and Alain Municipalities, participants from the private sector as well as from universities have attended the training. The participants from over 7 different countries in the region have been trained about acoustics, noise propagation, noise measurements, noise mapping and action planning. In the exercise of the last day everybody created a noise map of his own based on the input data they collected in the pilot area the previous day. Vibrocomp and SoundPLAN provided three days full support and expert guidance for the practical exercises as well as laptops preinstalled with SoundPLAN and Class I noise measurement instruments.

Driven by the success of this event and the supreme feedback received, Vibrocomp will host two further trainings end of February, 2015. We have scheduled one three-days training for entry level and one two-days training for the more advanced.

We will publish detailed information on the upcoming events shortly!
