We always remember the importance of the client’s timescale. We push ourselves to meet the necessary deadlines and answer those last-minute queries. That is part of the reason why so many clients have commissioned us for repeat projects over the last 18 years.

Office Acoustics

Diarmuid is an expert in office acoustics. He provided an excellent service to Storm Technology by evaluating our open plan office design and private office sound insulation design requirements (privacy/speech intelligibility/ambient noise). This included a review of sound insulation between spaces and reverberation design goals. He also proposed well-researched solutions to help us achieve a more comfortable office environment for our staff. I would recommend Diarmuid for any office acoustics work and related matters pertaining to private offices/meeting rooms/training rooms and open-plan office spaces.

Danone Christopher Rushe

Diarmuid is very professional towards his work and competent in the noise assessment area. I found Diarmuid also very friendly and not a clock watcher – he was more than helpful with any enquiries I had during his assessment.

Gordon White Consulting Engineers

We commissioned ICAN Acoustics on behalf of a client to provide an acoustic survey and report on short notice to accompany additional information for a residential housing development. Diarmuid pulled out the stops to get a very supportive report completed on time despite the short notice.
