Acoustic Engineering

We have over 37 years of experience in the acoustic, noise and vibration industry and have played a key role 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 formed in 2017 by Martin Raisborough and Graham Hornby – two former Directors at a top tier global engineering practice with a combined service of over 33 years.

Both Martin and Graham have a passion not only for their technical field of expertise, but principally being able to deliver their services in a way that is ‘hands on’ and focussed around an understanding of the wider needs and aspirations of their Clients. Through this philosophy, they have developed strong practical experience in the industry, allowing them to deliver technical guidance and solutions in recognition of, and in harmony with, wider commercial and technical constraints of a project.
