Entertainment & Nightclub Noise Surveys

Entertainment noise and nightclub noise surveying measures whether the noise levels in a venue comply with regulations. Noise surveys must be conducted for all venues which play live or recorded music; including restaurants, bars, pubs and nightclubs. Additionally, they are also required if hosting live dramatic or dance performances.

These regulations are set out by Control of Noise at Work standards to protect people from excessive noise in the workplace. Furthermore, they also limit the noise disruption to nearby residents.

Usually you will carry out an entertainment noise survey as part of the design process for a new building. However, if your venue was once used for a different purpose, you will need to carry out entertainment and nightclub noise surveying.

An entertainment noise survey will simultaneously investigate all possible noise sources. For example, these could include noise related to transport, building services, music or people. Furthermore, we break down the data into a timeline to measure the potential daytime and nighttime average noise levels. Consequently, this allows us to better understand the acoustic footprint of the venue. UKBC’s service includes:
