Resonate Acoustics purchases Savery & Associates to boost acoustics services In Queensland - July 2016

There’s a new name on the Queensland engineering landscape – and it’s about to make a lot of noise with the coming together of leading acoustics and vibration consulting engineering companies Savery & Associates and Resonate Acoustics..

The new entity, Savery Resonate Acoustics, will begin operating on 1 July, bringing together Savery & Associates’ almost 20 years in the business and Adelaide-headquartered Resonate Acoustics’ three-year-old Brisbane branch.

The transaction effectively sees Resonate Acoustics acquire the business of Savery & Associates, with the vastly experienced and highly respected acoustics and vibration engineer John Savery remaining in a part-time capacity as Technical Director and Senior Consultant Matthew Terlich continuing on a permanent basis.

Both companies are built on and staunchly committed to the twin pillars of technical excellence and superior customer service. And in John Savery, the new entity will benefit from his wise counsel and specialist knowledge gained over an impressive 34-year-career. His eagerness to remain a vital member of the new Savery Resonate Acoustics team will also allow for great continuity and be of major benefit to the many clients and potential clients seeking assistance in the areas of noise and vibration measurement.

The new Savery Resonate Acoustics company will look to preserve everything good about Savery & Associates while growing Savery Resonate Acoustics in Queensland, creating new job opportunities and helping to stimulate the local economy.

Small bars and licenced venues—November 2014

With quirky small bars fast becoming the rage across metropolitan Australia, the challenge is to ensure that these vibrant venues and those who call the inner city home can thrive in harmonious co-existence.

Acoustic engineering is increasingly playing a pivotal role in this regard, delivering an environment that’s music to the ears of all parties and, in the process, is helping to promote inner city vitality while protecting residents’ rights, stimulating the economy and creating jobs.

Adelaide City Council’s (ACC) Vibrant City program is a case in point. Designed to get more people living, working, spending time and investing in the CBD, it has witnessed some 28 small bar venues opening in the two years since it took hold. At the same time, it has created more than 200 jobs and injected around $5-million into the local economy.

The program’s undoubted success lies in a consultative approach characterised by all parties working together to achieve a universally favourable outcome. Key among the steps taken was a review of the mandatory independent acoustic report that accompanies all licence applications.

Regarded as onerous and expensive by small venue operators and often cited as a potential hurdle to their opening, the ACC and acoustic experts joined forces to re-examine the process and adopt a more amenable approach.

It still carefully assesses music and patron noise and puts in place effective measures to protect the residential ambience but in doing away with some unnecessary elements, is now embraced by venue owners and supported by residents.

The model’s success could well see it rolled out into other residential areas in the not-too-distant future.
