Clarke Saunders Associates is upholding a family and business tradition with the election of company director Dan Saunders to a key national association role.
Dan was appointed chair of the Association Noise Consultants at the recent annual general meeting. The ANC is the voice of professional consultancy in acoustics, noise and vibration, and it aims to highlight how ANC members lead the way to improve acoustics for the whole of society.
Dan follows in the footsteps of his father Alan Saunders and colleague Ed Clarke – both fellow directors of Clarke Saunders Associates – in taking up the position.
Having started his career in acoustics, Dan is now based at Clarke Saunders Associates’ offices in Winchester and London. Dan comments: “Particular areas I am keen to explore and develop include research, funded by ANC, which can benefit the membership. I am also keen to continue the excellent work of the previous chair Jack Harvie-Clark, and those in the role previously, in the preparation and issue of Good Practice documents. Finally, it is important to raise awareness of acoustics to encourage more people from across society into the industry.”
Over the years, Dan has provided client and project management services on all elements of acoustics for a wide-range of large residential and commercial schemes, and is also an expert witness, with experience in assessing the noise impact of large scale industrial developments. These include infrastructure, heavy industry, waste disposal facilities, power generation and renewable resources, such as offshore and onshore wind farms, throughout the UK and Europe. Dan also has additional experience of assessments in relation to the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005, and the 1989 Regulations before that, specifically in relation to hearing loss cases.
Retiring chair Jack Harvie-Clark of Apex Acoustics and Andrew Parkin of Cundall have stood down after 6 years of service. New recruits include Martin Raisborough of MZA Consulting Engineers and Mark Scaife of MLM.
