Gatewave - Our newest solution for clients to manage construction noise and vibration

Our newest solution for clients to manage construction noise and vibration



Noise model inputs example

Construction projects often have complex requirements around noise and vibration. Predicting, assessing and managing noise and vibration impacts are a big part of getting the approvals needed to progress through each stage of development.


For large scale construction projects with plant and equipment constantly being relocated as works progress, traditional construction noise and vibration impact assessments that are required during the early stages of the project rarely have the level of detail necessary to manage impacts on a daily or weekly timeframe. Not only that, throughout the life of the project, construction activities and methodologies may suddenly need to change due to unexpected restrictions and requirements.

To overcome these challenges, Renzo Tonin & Associates has developed Gatewave, a project-specific 3D construction noise and vibration assessment tool to address and properly manage construction noise and vibration impacts in a fast and reliable way, saving you time and money.


Developed in direct consultation with some of the largest and most reputable construction companies in Australia, Gatewave is an integrated and holistic solution to noise and vibration management. Users can customise the type and location of the works and quickly see results in their browser. Then, Gatewave streamlines the approvals process by automatically generating project-specific reports. These reports are suitable to submit alongside any out-of-hours work assessments or other modification assessments of tunnelling, excavation, surface and utility works.

Gatewave also includes an extensive database of typical construction plant and equipment noise and vibration data, which clients can draw on as part of construction projects. This database can also be updated and tailored to specific works as required.


Various project parameters can be fed into Gatewave to allow the tool to calculate and tailor noise and vibration impacts and management options, such as:


- areas that work will be undertaken


- construction equipment being used


- time of day


- duration of works


Gatewave can assess airborne noise, ground-borne noise and vibration. It is the only package known that assesses both noise and vibration impacts.


For the prediction of airborne noise, Gatewave conforms to industry standards and is powered by CadnaA, the world’s leading 3D acoustic software for the prediction of environmental noise.


Throughout the life of the project, acoustic engineers from Renzo Tonin & Associates are available to offer guidance and support to Gatewave users. The tool is constantly updated to reflect current prediction methods and construction equipment noise levels.
