A Barrier for Community Power Generation Close to Homes
Urban intensification can result in a loss of buffer zones, placing sources of noise and sensitive points of reception in closer proximity to each other. Complete removal of separation distance that is used for sound reduction can require replacement with substantial mitigation measures.This case study looks at some of the challenges encountered in using a 13 m high sound barrier to mitigate sound from a community power generation facility directly adjacent to residential land use. Reasons behind the need for such a substantial barrier will be considered together with challenges arising in placement of the barrier. Calculated sound reduction requirements were verified with field measurements. Installation of the barrier allowed residential land use on property immediately adjacent to a community power generation facility.
