Being a preferred community partner means looking out for your neighbors. Achieving this isn’t always simple as one of the biggest challenges many operations face is excess noise which can impact overall relations with your valued neighbors. For our client, taking that risk was not an option. When they identified noise concerns with their loading dock – transportation noise issues with shipments being received all hours of the day coupled with the fact that a multi-story residential development was less than 100 m away, our customer was proactive in finding a solution. Merlin was contacted to provide a large sound barrier to block noise from the loading dock. In addition, absorptive panels were added to the exterior building façade and colours were custom powder coated to match the building owners branding. These customized solutions significantly reduced the excess noise going into the community, further creating goodwill and solidified our customer’s positioning as a preferred community partner. That’s the big impact low noise can deliver.
