ACCON GmbH offers its services in the fields of environmental noise, machinery noise, building acoustics, and vibration. In addition, it represents the client at hearings, presentations, and negotiations. With 25 employees in offices in Greifenberg, Cologne and Berlin, they service the clients throughout the Federal Republic of Germany and world-wide. Several of the staff members are officially certified experts and they provide expert support in lawsuits at court, and other testimony. As a result of research projects for clients from the public sector, their work has been used for the technical basis of official standards and guidelines. Several members in the staff of ACCON GmbH lead or co-ordinate national and international standardisation projects. This leadership role helps keep the company at the forefront of the state-of-the-art and supports world-wide standards.
In the joint venture between ACCON GmbH and DataKustik GmbH, ACCON is responsible for the acoustical development and support of the world-wide leading software program for assessing and mapping of environmental noise, CadnaA. ACCON clients have the advantage of this capability and experience in the handling of large calculation projects. ACCON will integrate the noise score models developed by TNO in its software. Reference situations will be studied within the CITYHUSH project coming from the available database from ACCON: noise maps are available from cities all over Europe, with all relevant input data (traffic flow, density of people living) allowing the calculation of score ratings.
