Westfield Miranda is located within the Sutherland Shire on the Kingsway adjacent the Cronulla rail corridor. In 2008 the shopping centre sought planning approval for a significant expansion, introducing several noise sources that required acoustic treatment.
These noise sources included:
- Truck movements and unloading
- Vehicles using the new multi-level car parks
- General patron noise associated with the proposed new loggia outdoor eating areas
- Major new roof mounted air conditioning and refrigeration plant comprising cooling towers and air cooled chiller sets serving Myer, the proposed supermarket and the cinema complex.
Acoustic treatment was determined to ensure noise levels associated with the activities achieved the stringent objective noise criteria of the NSW Industrial Noise Policy and the Sutherland Shire Development Control Plan.
Sonus has also assisted Westfield with similar major expansion assessments at the Tea Tree Plaza, Marion and West Lakes shopping centres.
