Noise Abatement Program

Program Overview

MU Group Consulting have successfully managed projects relating to architectural acoustic treatments since 2016. MU Group has established a robust and effective project management, communication procedures, methodology, report templates and project documentation to satisfy client requirements and property owners. This supplements the strategic work MU Group does developing designs for noise walls on infrastructure projects.
We have successfully undertaken Noise Abatement projects across Greater Sydney and the Far North Coast NSW:

Building and Sustaining Relationships with Key Stakeholders

We have a track record of developing excellent relationships with owners and builders resulting in projects running smoothly. The MU Group team focus on providing information to make the owner comfortable and confident with MU Group and the NAP delivery process. We understand a transparent working relationship is crucial and delivers the best outcomes.

MU Group is prequalified on the TfNSW Panel of Architectural Advisory Consultants, which enables us to provide acoustic treatment to properties exposed to high levels of road traffic noise.

How we deal with difficulties

MU Group has developed a reputation for delivering solutions to customer issues, managing customer concerns in a very proactive and outcome focussed way.


MU Group successfully resolved several conflicts and issues with builders and property owners at previous NAP projects including more recently at Greystanes, where due to a severe breakdown in the relationship between the builder and homeowner MU Group stepped in, attending the site, supervising the builder and liaising with the owner until the works were completed and the homeowner was satisfied.


On the Blue Mountains NAP project, MU Group researched suitable cost-effective treatments such as door treatments and the screening of windows to protect the house from the ingress of embers. MU Group has also adopted the replacement of window sashes via the insert method which allowed the reglazing of the window without replacing the entire window frame. We also worked with TfNSW to develop scoping requirements for Bush Fire Attack for the NAP program. 

Other examples of issues and risks identified we resolved :
