An interesting mix of skill-sets

The English have a term: "Jack of all Trades"....that might apply here, although they also seem to be masters of many as well !

Location recording and acoustics consultants

That is nothing! Check out this group:
We shape a better world - Arup

There is a new/trendy performance space that credits ARUP for the acoustics...which apparently, are less impressive than the performance space's website implies. Now, ARUP and the performance space look disingenuine. "Good marketing only works if you are marketing something good."

The Cass Allen site says, "Cass Allen’s music recording work is carried out under the trading name ‘Opera Omnia Productions‘."

Cass Allen also offers the following service: Expert Testimony and Complaint Resolution

Noise is the most common source of complaint received by Local Authorities. We have extensive experience of helping companies accused of causing noise nuisance, working to proactively resolve problems without involving the legal process where possible. Although it is always preferable and less expensive to negotiate disagreements, there are times when consensus is not achievable. In such cases, our consultants are experienced in giving evidence in Court and at Planning Hearings / Inquiries, and Patrick Allen is a founding member of the Expert Witness Institute.

Ironically, people only complain about noise when there is, in fact, noise. Logically, that means an expert needs to be brought in. Once the expert has verified the presence of noise, they need to measure the noise to see if it under or over legal limits. I am sure this can be complicated because it involves knowing the legal noise levels of different environments such as Air Force bases and suburban neighborhoods. I think everyone here could figure it out though. Once you have determined the amount of noise using that expert looking noise measurement quantifier, you report back with either, "To much noise" or "Not enough noise." Then you collect your fee which should be very high because you are an expert after all.
