Construction and demolition can lead to concern about adjacent building damage or complaints of perceptible vibration. You already have enough to worry about when planning your project, why worry about this as well?
City Surveys & Monitoring Acoustic Department can supplement our remote vibration monitoring services with vibration assessments and a range of associated services that make your life easier.
These services include advice and assistance on vibration limits and effects in advance of works, providing real time enforcement and safety advice based on measurement data during operations, undertaking liaison with regulators and other stakeholders and providing post measurement assessment and reporting of data recorded. All our advice makes appropriate reference to current Standards, guidance and industry best practice.
Vibration assessment is frequently required for a variety of reasons. According to the relevant British Standard, “Such diverse purposes call for a variety of measuring systems, ranging from simple to sophisticated, deployed in different types of investigations. Technical guidance is needed by many interested parties on the most appropriate ways of measuring, characterizing and evaluating those vibrations that affect structures. This applies to both existing structures, which may be subjected to different types of excitation, and new structures erected in an environment where sources of excitation may be significant.” (BS ISO 4866:2010 Mechanical Vibration & Shock – Vibration of fixed structures – Guidelines for the measurement of vibration and evaluation of their effects on structures).
