We have contributed to the success of some of the most creative and iconic projects in the UK and overseas. As one of the leading environmental and technology consultants Vanguardia is partner of first choice for many architects, developers, project managers and end users. 


We have specific experience of acoustic design in arenas, having worked on some of the world’s most popular music and entertainment venues including The O2, The SSE Hydro, Coca-Cola Arena, Dubai.

We combine expertise in acoustic design for arenas with our knowledge and experience of live music and events. By analysing the propagation of sound in our modelling software, we investigate different surfaces to provide an optimised layout for acoustic quality and use audible demonstrations to make informed design decisions.

Commercial & Residential

Vanguardia has particular expertise working as acoustic consultants on both commercial and residential projects. Whether buildings are used for work, living or retail, it is crucial that they are designed with optimum sound insulation and acoustic environments in mind.

We work closely with our clients, often from initial concepts and architectural and environmental modelling, right through to pre-completion testing. By conducting precision acoustic and structural measurements, noise impact reports and providing technical support throughout, we ensure minimal noise interference for everything from building ventilation to full-scale construction.
