About Us

Acoustics RB Pty Ltd is a specialised environmental acoustics consultancy.  Director and Principal Consultant, Russell Brown, has more than 30 years experience in environmental noise issues including noise measurement and investigation of noise problems, environmental noise impact studies and formulation of noise policies and control strategies.

Russell has presented expert evidence on many occasions and in a number of jurisdictions in Queensland and NSW.  He is a regular contributor to national and international conferences on environmental noise and a member of the Standards Association of Australia Committee on Environmental Noise as well as a foundation member of the Queensland Division of the Australian Acoustical.  He has also been a regular guest lecturer in environmental noise at Griffith University and a recurrent adviser to Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management on environmental noise policy.

Since 1982, Russell has conducted environmental noise impact assessments for public and private sector clients at more than one thousand industrial, commercial and residential developments in Queensland.

His experience has ranged from monitoring of noise emission from noise sources of many types to the planning and co-ordination of environmental impact statements for proposed large commercial and industrial complexes.  This work has encompassed all stages from project planning, government liaison and 24 hour monitoring of the existing noise climate, through modelling of noise sources and prediction of the new noise levels following development, to provision of designs for noise control treatments to meet statutory requirements and formulation of draft policy for State and Local Government.
