In 2017, Thornton Tomasetti acquired Swallow Acoustic Consultants Limited, a consulting engineering firm with 37 years of experience in acoustics, vibration and noise control. We provide a full spectrum of acoustics services – architectural and forensic – coordination and supervision of subconsultants, testing and construction supervision, construction vibration assessment and monitoring, and expert opinion and expert testimony.
We maintain laboratory-quality instrumentation for sound and vibration measurement, recording and analysis, as well as software packages for environmental noise analysis, room acoustics prediction (ray tracing), system analysis, finite-element analysis, and computational analysis.
Our staff has extensive experience in providing noise and vibration solutions for new residential and commercial buildings, including tall and supertall structures, hotels, industrial plants, hospitals and research facilities, sports venues and convention centers, bridges, performing arts facilities, schools and libraries, courthouses, community centers, worship spaces and fitness facilities.
