Enhance Acoustics have provided noise consultancy services on a number of projects for ORS. These have included advising on and monitoring of environmental noise and building acoustics. The works have been carried out within budget and specified timelines. I would have no hesitation recommending Enhance Acoustics for any future projects.
Alan Kiernan - Senior Environmental Engineer - ORS
Derek from Enhance Acoustics really showed how flexible he could be to help us through the acoustic testing on our latest housing development in Edenderry. I would recommend Derek to any potential client and truly look forward to working with him in the near future.

Martin Denali - Director - Denali Holdings Ltd
We were very happy in all our dealings with Enhance Acoustics and the work carried out by Cunas. During the initial site visit Derek from Enhance Acoustics and David from Cunas talked through and explained the process, the materials which would be used and the solution which best suited our home. They genuine passion for the business they’re in is clearly evident. Once the work began great care was first taken in protecting all the floor surfaces and covering furniture etc.... The installation of the sound proofing was fast, 2.5days and great care was again taken when cleaning up. David called out again two weeks later to inspect all the corners, skirting joints etc in case any additional last touch-ups were needed after all the plaster had dried out. The performance of the sound insulation actually exceeded my expectations. Our neighbour who is hard of hearing has their TV blaring. Before the sound insulation we could hear word for word the dialogue coming from their TV. Now however, sitting in absolute silence in our room (which would never realistically happen) we can hear nothing. The sound insulation is not cheap, but as the saying goes "Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten". I know in the months and years to come, as we sit enjoying a book or a movie without the intrusion from our neighbours TV, the price we paid will indeed be forgotten.
Padraig Maguire, Private Homeowner, Co. Dublin
I have been involved with acoustic detail fitouts for 14 years, specialising in improving houses and workplace environments with sound insulation and specialised acoustic treatments. I have engaged acoustic engineers to provide acoustic specification and detail to ensure the outcome meets the requirements of my clients. My business has benefited very significantly since I was introduced to Derek, he has an unrivalled passion and respect for his profession. Derek begins all new project investigations listening carefully to the person or business affected, his attention to detail and high standards have meant that my clients feel very assured and confident that their project is in the right hands. Most of my domestic sound insulation projects begin with a client explaining how noise affects their life in relation to stress, sleep deprivation and anxiety. Derek provides reassurance and understanding in a professional and human way that my clients feel understood and confident that we can provide a solution to their problem and improve their quality of life. He has improved our standard of work significantly through not only providing detail but following through how its implemented, providing advice and education to us thus always maximising the outcome of a project. I have no doubt Derek will be held to a high recognition within his profession and will lead the way, I have never felt more reassured that my client or project is in the best possible hands. The growth of my business owes a lot to Derek, clients know I can deliver because they quickly see that he will not associate with poor practice and persons who don’t appreciate the detail requited. I could go on forever about what Derek has bought to us, but it will only take you minutes to know you have the right man on your project.
David Fitzgerald - Cunas Noise Reduction Solutions
Before we got this work undertaken we had a consultation with Derek from Enhanced Acoustics. Derek was very reassuring. He listened intently and answered any questions we had and explained in detail the project and what to expect. It was very helpful to know we could contact Derek throughout the project. David from Cúnas also detailed the job from start to finish. David and his team were very professional, trustworthy and pleasant to deal with. David communicated daily with us and you can see he takes great pride in his work. He is extremely thorough. We are delighted with the work that they carried out which was completed within a week. They were very respectful of our home and you cannot tell from looking that there are any changes. After the project both Derek and David made contact it is reassuring to know they are not happy until you are. Before the sound insulation upgrade we could hear everything from the neighbours e.g curtains being pulled, voices, tv, dishwasher being emptied, alarm being set and so on now we don’t hear any of that from our upgraded walls. This has made a huge difference to our lives and general wellbeing.
