LOCATION: San Jose, CA
PROJECT TYPE: Environmental Noise Study
CLIENT: Kiddie Academy Daycare
CONSTRUCTION YEAR: 2015
Kiddie Academy Childcare relied on CSDA to prepare an environmental noise study for their new location in San Jose, CA. Acousticians measured and calculated the existing environmental noise exposure at the site and evaluated interior noise levels inside the daycare center. As part of the study, CSDA calculated the expected noise generated by the children on the playground to neighboring residences to determine if a noise variance from the City was necessary to meet the San Jose Zoning Ordinance. We recommended mitigation measures, such as sound-rated windows and doors, to reduce noise generated by traffic on Almaden Expressway, and to meet CalGreen and City requirements.
