About Anderson Acoustics

We are a conscious acoustics consultancy making an active contribution to a sustainable future and improved quality of life.

Our Values

Great People

We are professional, honest, straightforward, down to earth, and approachable - good service and understanding come naturally. We treat people with respect and provide opportunities, the work environment and freedom to lead and succeed.

Driven by quality

From the way we engage with our clients, to the clarity of our reporting and our internal processes, the quality of our approach underpins everything we do. As the founder of Lego, Ole Kirk, said "the best is never too good".

Technically robust

We are technically strong and our work is thorough. However, our industry can often be over complicated by jargon so we aim to communicate in a way that people will understand.

Our Company

The company was formed in Brighton in 2006 and has become a successful and respected consultancy with a reputation for delivering a reliable, honest, friendly and professional service. With over twenty great employees we are one of the largest specialist acoustics consultancy practices in the UK, meaning we can deliver on the most challenging projects.

We provide acoustics and vibration management consultancy services across the airports, construction, environmental, schools and building acoustics sectors (including UKAS accredited sound insulation testing). We have been involved in small to very large scale projects, ranging in value from under fifty thousand to billions of pounds, with team experience delivering UK and international projects.

We pride ourselves on developing an excellent understanding of our clients’ needs; we work collaboratively, adding value wherever possible to secure successful and sustainable outcomes.

Our contributions have been recognised in an award-winning school development (RIBA London 2010 Award Longford Community School).

Our second office opened in 2013, just five minutes from London Bridge. The London office has enabled us to expand, provide a more timely service to our clients in and around the capital whilst keeping us grounded by the seaside.

In this increasingly challenging and changing world we need to develop whilst remaining true to our core principles. With valuable support from the team at Conscious Business People, we are evolving a conscious and democratic approach to business to enable a continued, sustainable and happy future.

One thing is for sure, we will continue to develop as our people, clients and the environment present new opportunities and challenges.
