The famous Turkish Restaurant “Istanbul” in the heart of late night Dalston is well established and the management had decided on a complete refurbishment. Included in the proposals was a new kitchen extract system and some additional air conditioning units. Many residents are living nearby in flats and apartments, and there was concern over potential noise and disturbance from the new machinery and plant, and the local authority had put strict conditions on the planning permission.
Shaun Murkett Acoustic Consultants Ltd were called in and were commissioned to investigate and undertake a noise survey and to issue an acoustic report with comprehensive design recommendations and works to allow the new ventilation system and air conditioning to operate late through the night with-out disturbing local residents.
These works were soon installed on the new system, with regular inspections by the Acoustic Consultant to assist the contractors. A follow up sound test soon confirmed that the noise levels were acceptable for the regulations, and after a brief report from the Acoustic Consultant the local authority conditions were all signed off. The restaurant was soon trading again successfully with lots of happy customers, and continues to grow in business.

Shaun Murkett Acoustics have always been really helpful to us.
They did a full professional noise survey and told us what we needed
to do to sort out our problems. We sent their noise reports to the council and it was all cleared up very quickly. They are really good, and well worth it ! "
