There is always a solution
Together with Arcadis, we are involved in the acoustic research to determine the extent of the noise measures for the MJPG of Rijkswaterstaat. Our acoustic research covers plot 2, which roughly covers the area of the provinces of Utrecht and South Holland.
Measuring Acoustics for Comfort & Health, or MACH for short, is a measuring system that can monitor noise levels on an of
Together with the Arcadis engineering firm, M+P is investigating the best measures for the central government to mitigate noise pollution from road traffic. The goal: to truly improve the quality of life of local residents.
The municipality of Amsterdam had plans for housing construction at the Sloterdijk office location for years. A major challenge, because the area is surrounded by noise - and that can get in the way of a pleasant living environment.
Manufacturers from all over the world ask M+P to certify their test tracks: stretches of road surface to test whether new tyres or new vehicles are making too much noise.
For the measurements we take at M+P, we are often on the road at unusual times and locations.
Sometimes you have to get creative in order to achieve your goals. Gijsjan van Blokland, former managing director and senior consultant at M+P, agrees.
A zoo, Scheveningen beach, the money museum. Just some of the places that Katja Thyssen, organisational talent at M+P, came up with as event venues.
The Netherlands leads the way when it comes to innovations in quiet road surfaces. This is partly due to the research and many measurements carried out by M+P.
With the emergence of noise legislation, M+P received an increasing number of large assignments from governments.
Thousands of reports on one USB stick: looking back at how colleagues worked decades ago has never been easier. ‘You can see connections to our present day all the time; it's addictive’, notes director Jan Hooghwerff.
Our measuring technicians Patrick Boelens and Patrick Meelen frequently encounter it.
An internship at M+P can simply define your career. Senior consultant Ronald van Loon is still working with us almost 25 years later.
