LOCATION: Universal Studios, Los Angeles, CA
PROJECT TYPE: Sound Monitoring
CLIENT: Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning
CONSTRUCTION YEAR: 2014-2018
CSDA is conducting sound monitoring services as part of a four-year contract with
the County of Los Angeles Department of Regional Planning. The project involves
quarterly monitoring activities that occur at six off-site, public locations around the
perimeter of Universal Studios, as determined by the Los Angeles County Specific Plan.
Monitoring activities occur concurrently over 24-hour periods. As requested, CSDA
also performs additional sound monitoring studies for outdoor special events with
more than 250 attendees that include amplified sound. In addition, we document the
monitoring process through each step of execution and provide presentations and
written reports for each monitoring event.
CSDA is registered with the GAIN/GROW work program through which we are
hiring and training qualified individuals to supplement our internal staff. With our
participation in the GAIN/GROW hiring program, we have been able to provide
employment opportunities to County residents, teach them new vocational skills, and
help them to improve their future job prospects. The trained GAIN/GROW staff assist
our team with the on-site measurements and note the time and cause of any events
above the Specific Plan noise limits.
