Jarrod Whittington, Senior Associate of Acoustics, was recently nominated and appointed to the New York City Environmental Control Board, a part of the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH). This Mayor-appointed position will allow Jarrod to serve as the Noise Specialist for the Environmental Control Board.

OATH/ECB is an essential agency in that it provides a fully independent, third-party review of appeals to city summonses. The agency cares deeply about procedural justice, and by serving on this board I will be doing my part to help ensure fairness and equality for all New Yorkers.”
For more than a decade, Jarrod Whittington has been providing acoustic consulting services to architects, engineers, developers, and owners in the New York area and beyond.
