Noise pollution tackled by Trade Center echo barrier

Echo Barrier Limited announced that the firm’s Echo Barrier H2 Series acoustic barriers have helped to provide a solution to construction noise at the World Trade Center development site in New York City.

The sound-reducing barriers were first called for by the World Trade Center project team to reduce disruption to passersby caused by construction noise.

When the barriers were installed at the World Trade Center site, the noise level was immediately reduced.

Today, almost two years after the initial installation, the Echo Barriers continue to shield the public from noise and dust.

Peter Wilson, Technical Director of Echo Barrier said, “We are pleased to have launched the use of Echo Barrier in the United States with a project that is so important. Construction-related noise pollution has certainly proven to be a detrimental health concern as well as adversely affecting the environment.

“Echo Barrier is committed to its ongoing efforts to provide the most effective and efficient solutions to address as many of these challenges as possible within Best Practices and sustainability. We are also just as committed to the working environment of our clients’ crews.”
