HGC Engineering is one of North America’s largest engineering consulting firm specializing exclusively in noise, vibration and acoustics. Established in 1994, HGC Engineering has been a valued support partner to leading architects, developers, builders, engineers, designers and planners in the development of major commercial, residential, institutional, industrial and mixed-used projects across Canada, the US, and around the world. We have worked on projects of all shapes and sizes including large multi-story, multi-tower developments to full scale master-planned communities, many of which are now considered to be city architectural landmarks, addressing a broad spectrum of noise, vibration and acoustical applications concerns. Many of these projects have included acoustically challenging adjacent amenities and retail spaces like food courts, wellness and fitness centers, and theatres. Moreover, due to high-density planning and urban intensification development policies for city cores, many high-rise projects today are being developed side-by-side with still active industry and busy transportation corridors. We are proficient at assessing and mitigating the noise and vibration impact of industrial activities, as well as rail, subway and highways on sensitive developments like high-rise residential buildings. We are experts in construction vibration monitoring; whole building vibration isolation and analysis; as well as isolating the impact of vibration on hypersensitive equipment used in healthcare and scientific institutions. We can also act as expert witnesses in disputes involving the rezoning of industrial areas for residential developments.
