Awards 2018

The ANC awards promote and recognise excellence among UK acoustic consultants and raise the profile of acoustics. The Awards look for examples of work that displays innovation, and originality in acoustic design or approach to a particular project.

This year’s winners were revealed on Wednesday 27th June and presented by Hugh Hunt,  Cambridge University Reader in Engineering Dynamics and Vibration.
