Mineral extraction, waste recycling, dredging, construction and demolition

ISVR Consulting is regularly commissioned to carry out projects involving the assessment and control of environmental noise and vibration from mineral extraction and waste recycling projects. Frequently the work involves preparing predictions of environmental noise to support planning applications or to be used as evidence in public inquiries for which we provide services as expert witnesses. Many projects have involved the closely related area of land drilling for the exploration of oil and other minerals.

Our clients have included, amongst others, the Institute of Geological Sciences, the Steetley Group, Land and Properties (ECC) Ltd, Tilcon, Tarmac, ARC, Hampshire County Council and Dorset County Council.

Projects have covered the noise generated by the extraction of Fullers Earth, sand and gravel, by waste recycling, land-raising schemes, dredging, drilling for geological surveys and by oil exploration on shore.
