The Nederlander Theatre Group Working with Cirrus

The Nederlander Theatre Group – Working with Cirrus

The team at the Nederlander Theatre Group were in the market for a noise solution that would enable them to ensure that staff and patrons were not being exposed to excessive sound levels during performances in their theatres. They also wanted to be able to ensure that they were compliant with The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.

As a company, the Nederlander Theatre Group carry out regular noise dosimetry with their staff, but wanted to enhance this further by means of a continuous monitoring system that would record noise levels across theatre locations and not just simply provide a snapshot of shift exposure.

The team also wanted a sound portal that would record 24/7 and store results indefinitely, so they are able to look back and generate reports as to what the sound levels were in certain parts of their theatres – namely where ushers are positioned during shows.

This is where the team at Cirrus Research stepped in to save the day.

“We created a new system specifically for this theatre group, but it has a much wider field of use.”

As there was nothing on the market to fit the needs of the team at the Nederlander Theatre Group, they reached out to Cirrus Research, as well as several other companies to discuss the concept.

Craig Storey, UK Account Manager at Cirrus Research, attended several talks with the team and assisted on leading the project. The Quantum Indoor was born from these discussions, with Craig Storey and the Research and Development team at Cirrus Research consistently bearing in mind the design criteria and the necessary functionality required.

The Quantum Indoor is a remote noise monitor with built-in cloud connectivity, which is ideal for long-term indoor occupational monitoring. This device is designed to be discrete and is easily camouflaged into the background of many locations.

This small but powerful device is simple to install and measures everything you need for comprehensive indoor noise measurements. Once data is captured, this is then pushed to the Cirrus Research cloud platform, where users can then access live and historical data wherever they are, whenever they need it via standard web browsers. On this platform, users can also view and analyse historical data and create detailed reports, set up comprehensive event-based triggers to capture audio recordings and send alerts via text message, notifications or email.

“We are pleased to say that these units have been monitoring both the Dominion Theatre and The Aldwych Theatre for several years now and have proved a reliable tool to ensure we reduce the risks of health and safety from exposure to noise at work.”

These devices are now an integral part of the group’s procedures for compliance with the Control of Noise at Work regulations, 2005.

Speaking of the work carried out with the Nederlander Theatre Group, Craig Storey said, “We created a new system specifically for this theatre group, but it has a much wider field of use. It is now installed in many industrial settings such as workshops, warehouses, etc, giving continuous workplace noise monitoring to help protect employees from overexposure to noise…”

Jonathan Dixon, Director of Property Services at the Nederlander Theatre Group, said, “We are pleased to say that these units have been monitoring both the Dominion Theatre and The Aldwych Theatre for several years now and have proved a reliable tool to ensure we reduce the risks of health and safety from exposure to noise at work.”
