Anderson Acoustics was honoured to attend the Noise Abatement Society’s John Connell Awards – dubbed the noise Oscars – 2018 this week at the Palace of Westminster in London.
The prestigious event is organised annually by the Noise Abatement Society (NAS), a UK charity whose aim is to share a better understanding of what sound is, how it affects us and how we can solve noise problems in a pragmatic and sustainable way.
Anderson Acoustics was proud to support the awards through the sponsorship of the Quiet Mark™ Commercial Sector Award which is given to a company which has shown outstanding commitment to customer care and values that align with Quiet Mark objectives.
This year we congratulate John Lewis Partnership for winning the Quiet Mark™ Commercial Sector Award.
John Lewis already pioneers the promotion of Quiet Mark™ low noise, high quality technology to bring peace and quiet to our homes and this award further recognises the retailer for extending this ethos into their logistics fleet.
John Lewis has risen to the sustainable delivery challenge by creating a high benchmark for very clean, very quiet trucks. It has purchased 61 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) trucks – fuelled by sustainable, clean and quiet bio-methane and featuring game-changing technology developed with Scania. In addition to adapting its fleet, it has implemented best practice guidance for quiet logistics from Transport for London and the NAS – for example, installing quiet floors and noise absorbing equipment at sites, ensuring that radios are turned off and that staff show considerate behaviour.
Gloria Elliott, Noise Abatement Society Chief Executive, said ‘NAS congratulates John Lewis Partnership on extending its customer care package to cover thoughtful, quiet deliveries to reduce disturbance to residents’.
We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to all the nominees and winners of the John Connell Awards 2018 and look forward to seeing them and other organisations and individuals making a positive impact to improve the impact of noise in the environment at next year’s ceremony.
Anderson Acoustics provides consultancy services to assess, mitigate and manage the risks arising from the impacts of noise and vibration associated with development. We support the aims and objectives of NAS and Quiet Mark by positively applying our understanding of sound, soundscapes and sound quality to deliver better buildings and spaces, better communities and places, and better products.Download
