Alternative platforms include Gotomeeting, Zoom meetings and Cisco platforms.
Our service ‘over the web’ helps keep costs low by eliminating the need for unnecessary travel time and costs to sites both locally and internationally. While the service is not a full substitute for site noise and vibration measurements, it does allow us to attend site meetings at a very competitive cost. In many cases, we also share our screen to discuss the findings of our report in your meeting room at a time that suits you and your colleagues.

We commissioned ICAN Acoustics on behalf of a client to provide an acoustic survey and report on short notice to accompany additional information for a residential housing development. Diarmuid pulled out the stops to get a very supportive report completed on time despite the short notice.

Ms. Triona Sheeran
Diarmuid Keaney of ICAN Acoustics was involved in a long-standing noise nuisance case on my behalf from a large corporate body. I found Diarmuid to be very capable in his work and he presented high-quality evidence in court which resulted in two successful outcomes at both District and Circuit Court level. His work for me challenged the largest noise consultancy in Ireland on technical matters which fell very much in our favour and key to the successful outcome. I would highly recommend Diarmuid for both commercial and private projects, both his dedication and passion for his job.

Ms. Denise Watson
Diarmuid compiled an acoustic report regarding a noise nuisance for me for a court appearance. He did an excellent job and also came and appeared in court. He is extremely professional and dedicated to his job. I would have no hesitation in recommending Diarmuid as an acoustics expert.

Mr Christopher Rushe
Diarmuid is very professional towards his work and competent in the noise assessment area. I found Diarmuid also very friendly and not a clock watcher – he was more than helpful with any enquiries I had during his assessment.

Mr Gundo Sohn
Diarmuid has given guest lectures at the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), for the Architectural Technology students on the Bachelor (Hons) programme in 4th year on Buildings Acoustics, and on environmental noise for our Master’s course in Environmental Systems. These presentations very useful for our students and gave them insights into the theory, practical applications, the regulatory framework and also the wide field of his consultancy work. I have also worked with Diarmuid in my time at the Galway City Architects in the City Council and in private practice and was always happy with his prompt and professional service. In addition, I also recommend Diarmuid’s email-newsletter for further reading, interesting! Thanks again, all the best!
Gundo Sohn, Architect and Architectural Lecturer.
GMIT Environmental Systems Masters Guest Lecturer
Diarmuid is a guest lecturer on the GMIT Environmental Systems Masters in the area of noise. Diarmuid is informative, practical and very easy to follow. The students found it very beneficial. Diarmuid blends his expert knowledge on noise with his practical background to make the lectures very enjoyable and interesting. He is a great communicator and I recommend Diarmuid without hesitation.
-GMIT Environmental Systems Masters
Diarmuid is an expert in office acoustics. He provided an excellent service to Storm Technology by evaluating our open plan office design and private office sound insulation design requirements (privacy/speech intelligibility/ambient noise). This included a review of sound insulation between spaces and reverberation design goals. He also proposed well-researched solutions to help us achieve a more comfortable office environment for our staff. I would recommend Diarmuid for any office acoustics work and related matters pertaining to private offices/meeting rooms/training rooms and open-plan office spaces.
-John Devlin, Director of Operations at Storm Technology
