Choose Charlie Fleming Associates?
If a consultant does not get the design information
to you on time, it can have cost implications
as a result of design and/or construction changes
later in the programme. We fully appreciate the
knock on effects and problems that not delivering
information on time can cause. If we say we will
get the information to you by a certain date,
Our fees are competitive and we offer discounts
for work on long term projects.
When we provide a quotation we stick to it. That
is what you pay, regardless of how long it actually
takes us to carry out the work.
Calculations performed by some other consultants,
whose work we have seen, use quick and relatively
simple equations, or “rules of thumb”,
which err on the side of caution. In this, they
tend to over-estimate the acoustical and noise
control measures required. Charlie Fleming Associates
uses complex equations which work out sound insulation,
noise levels and reverberation times very accurately,
and hence any control measures are more precisely
specified than they would perhaps be by some other
Examples of How
Using Charlie Fleming Associates Might Save You
In one year alone, we were commissioned 6 times
to carry out work which had been done badly by
other “acousticians”. In these cases
the first fee, paid to the other firm, was a waste
of money and accepting the cheaper quotation proved
to be a false economy. More importantly, in one
case, the other firm had specified remedial works
costing over £100,000, which our, more detailed,
investigation proved were not necessary. In another,
the glazing specification, for a large housing
development, was reduced once we had calculated
the internal noise levels more carefully. In the
remaining cases, reports by other firms had been
rejected by planning officers, and developments
did not proceed until we dealt with them.
This continues, with at least one or two jobs
coming to us every year because other “acousticians”
have not managed to carry out the work satisfactorily.
We think, from what we have seen and heard, that
our service is better than that offered by many
of our competitors.
