Noise control is important.
Noise generated from both indoor and outdoor equipment may result in complaints from nearby occupants. Most municipal authorities have noise property line by-laws which restricts sound levels. Any property line infractions can cost building owners fines, put engineers or acoustical consultants at risk, or in extreme cases, cause facility closures.

Common noise culprits:
- Air cooled chillers
- Roof top units
- Diesel generators
- Fan exhausts
- Cooling towers
Common noise sensitive sectors:
- Any building that requires emergency power systems and therefore have generators (i.e., hospitals, schools, community buildings, etc.)
- Wastewater treatment facilities
- Data centers
- Buildings in populous areas that have rooftop units
Commonly missed noise considerations:
- Neighboring buildings height (not just distance)
- Aerodynamics and energy impact
- IEQ impact
- Budget and/or investment impact
Noisy buildings have an adverse impact to the productivity and well-being of occupants, greatly impacting the quality and investment of the building.
To design and build great buildings, consider how noise control can impact the environment, the system and IEQ including Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and energy consumption.
