Jamie began his career in the acoustics industry in 2005 as a professional Audio Engineer. After successfully completing a range of Engineering papers at Auckland University of Technology to further his skill set, Jamie joined the team at Styles Group in 2008. Jamie is a Professional Member of the Acoustical Society of New Zealand and has served as an elected ASNZ Council Member since 2012.
Within his role at Styles Group, Jamie measures, predicts and assesses the effects of environmental noise and vibration. This includes computer noise modelling using Brüel & Kjær Predictor software, peer-review work for Local Government Authorities and presenting evidence at hearings as an expert witness. Jamie has been involved in a vast number of childcare centre projects nationwide working for the applicant, consent holder or Council as a reviewer. Jamie regularly undertakes measurements of ground borne vibration in structures and road and rail vibration in accordance with the relevant standards. Jamie also undertakes work in building acoustics testing and analysis and calibration of loudspeaker systems.
Jamie enjoys the diversity and challenges of his profession and particularly relishes the field of construction noise and vibration. He has been closely involved with project teams on many large scale construction projects nationwide including the Manukau Harbour Crossing, Victoria Park Tunnel, Hamilton Ring Road, the Waikato Expressway, MacKays to Peka Peka Expressway, the Waterview Connection Project and the Puhoi to Warkworth Project. During the initial stages of the Waterview Project, Jamie undertook more than 200 overpressure and structural vibration measurements during blasting within Alan Wood Reserve. Jamie has extensively measured construction noise and vibration from piling works, rock breaking, blasting, tunnelling and dynamic compaction.
Outside of work Jamie enjoys playing guitar, kayak fishing and spending time with his three children.
