Acoustic Engineering

Our Acoustics team has over 37 years’ experience in the acoustic, noise and vibration industry and, during their careers, the directors have played key roles in signature UK and international development and infrastructure projects such as The Shard in London, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station in London and Perth Arena and Mirvac Tower in Perth, Australia.



MZA Acoustics was founded in 2017 by Martin Raisborough and Graham Hornby, two former directors at a top tier global engineering practice.

Both Martin and Graham have a passion not only for their technical field of expertise, but also delivering their services in a way that is ‘hands on’ and focussed around an understanding of the wider needs and aspirations of their clients. They have developed strong practical experience in the industry, enabling them to deliver technical guidance and solutions in recognition of, and in harmony with, wider commercial and technical constraints of a project.
