Group Leaders

Darryl McCumber BASc, PEng Associate, Acoustical Engineer

Darryl is a member of our built environment division, with over 10 years of experience in noise and vibration related to planning, design, and construction of new residential and commercial developments.

He is adept at assessing potential impacts of noise and vibration from various sources at proposed future development sites, and providing recommendations for noise and vibration control required to meet applicable limits of various regulatory bodies. Darryl specializes in finite element modelling to design and specify building isolation systems, to minimize impacts from potential sources of vibration (e.g., subway, train, etc.).

During design and construction, his work focuses on providing conceptual and/or detailed recommendations to provide sufficient acoustical separation between noise sensitive spaces and the various mechanical, electrical, amenity, and utility spaces.

Darryl also aids in resolving complaints related to noise and vibration concerns in completed developments for developers and property managers alike. He is skilled at conducting measurements and testing to various standards (ASTM, ASHRAE, ISO, etc.), and providing recommendations to resolve the concerns.

Some notable projects Darryl has worked on include 1 Yorkville, 160 Front St. W., 10 York Condominiums, and Waterfront Innovation Centre
