Our Practice

RSK Acoustics Limited has established a reputation for excellence amongst its wide private and public sector client base. We are a discrete acoustic consultancy practice formed as a separate limited company, but are also part of the RSK Group and we continue to have the same close working relationship and backing of all our RSK multi-disciplinary colleagues and partners.

Our ethos is to provide practical and cost effective solutions for our clients. Our advice is developed by fully qualified consultants and is based on rigorous technical analysis, backed up with sophisticated computational and modelling tools. Our quality control procedures ensure our product is delivered to the most exacting standards in a clear, concise and well-presented form. The vast majority of our work stems from repeat business and direct recommendation. We have worked on projects worldwide a and the international experience we have acquired adds value to all our project work.

Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on the underlying principle that acoustic and dynamic effects can be described and quantified scientifically.

We employ acoustic design solutions and noise control strategies which are founded on robust analytical techniques, innovation and extensive experience.

We are mindful of specific constraints, the need to integrate seamlessly with other professional disciplines, encompassing sustainable design requirements and the importance of adding value.

We apply all of our knowledge and expertise according to a structured Quality Management system certified as compliant with ISO 9001:2015.

The Basic Beliefs that We Share

A belief in ourselves, our abilities and values

A belief in each other and the unity of the team

A belief that what we do is for the mutual benefit of ourselves, our clients and the wider community

Goals and Aspirations

Our goal is to be the market leader in acoustic consultancy with a high profile within the industry whilst engendering respect amongst our professional peers and clients. We aim to provide a cutting edge and innovative consultancy offer and to continue to thrive on the diversity and quality of our work and advance our industry’s knowledge base. We strive to be proactive on all “Sustainability” issues and to demonstrably lead by example.

Giving Back

The UK Government encourages businesses to give something back to society through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and this is supported at RSK Acoustics. We are committed to supporting local charities, including the Surrey Deaf Children's Society, Mustard Tree and UgandAid. We have also provided professional services on construction projects for charities, working gratis or at discounted rates to help deliver cost effective facilities for charity organisations.

History

Cole Jarman Limited was formed in 1993 and developed a reputation for excellence in acoustic consultancy. It became part of the RSK Group in 2017 and in June 2021 Cole Jarman joined forces on equal terms with the well-established Acoustics team at RSK to form the new RSK Acoustics Limited company. Dan Clare acts as Managing Director and Tom Zarebski as Director. The merging of the teams has allowed a one stop high quality acoustic consultancy offer to be developed over a wider range of acoustic services to the same exacting and enviable standards.
