Ambient has created a transport noise map of Victoria, providing noise exposure reports to those looking to purchase or rent properties, allowing people to understand their noise exposure prior to moving in.
Ambient is an Australian company devoted to environmental data collation and mapping of our major cities and regions. Ambient goal is to help Australians understand how to transport noise and air quality affects their homes.
Ambient produces a range of maps and tabulated data, which show transport-related noise levels for individual properties and across whole suburbs of Australia. Ambient maps and data cover air traffic noise, road traffic noise, rail noise, air quality and future road noise impacts.
Real estate buyers in Victoria can now request their conveyancing solicitor a noise report as part of the purchase due diligence.
Ambient is led by Ben Hinze, an acoustic engineer with over 20 years of experience. Ben has led the completion of city noise maps in the US, Europe, Canada, Asia, New Zealand, and Australia. Bens’ studies in noise mapping have been published within Australia and overseas.
