Echo Barrier is the construction noise solution; a portable noise barrier that soaks up sound rather than just eflecting it like some other products.
It has already proven popular on large scale overseas projects including the 2012 London Olympics. “Our local customers include companies like John Holland Group, Regional Rail Link and Aggreko,” said Echo Barrier’s Ray Lee. “These barriers can significantly reduce noise impacts on people living and working near construction projects.
We are delighted to have played an important part in the upgrade to Tottenham Court Road Underground station on behalf of Vinci/BAM Nuttall, providing a solution to works noise which impacts on the thousands of commuters passing by every day.
Our barriers, which significantly reduce inconvenient noise outputs, have ensured that works were able to continue during unsociable hours without negatively impacting the community.
Not only were Echo Barriers used to extend working hours and keep site noise to a minimum, they also helped reduce dust and debris spilling out onto the street, keeping the site tidy.
