Noise surveys include a visit to a site and the undertaking of noise measurements. A bespoke noise control strategy will follow, after the analysis of the acquired noise data, allowing for a flexible, yet targeted solution.
Noise sources can vary in nature, however typical assessment scenarios would include:
- Fixed mechanical plant installations
- Live music in a concert, or festival
- Entertainment, or licensed premises venues (clubs, pubs, restaurants)
- Religious services in places of worship
- Clay target shooting
- Road traffic noise
- Noise from motorsports
A manual noise survey provides detailed information on the acoustic identity of the noise source being assessed in the context of a noise impact assessment. An automated survey involves the installation of one, or more, noise monitors which will be used to examine the noise profile of the area under investigation.
A vibration survey provides all the necessary vibration profile information of a source (e.g. a railway line). All acquired data will assist in assessing any adverse effect on either: a building’s occupants, or the building itself in terms of its structural integrity.
Typical scenarios include:
- Sites for residential development adjacent to railway lines
- Refurbishments of lower-ground floor apartments and control of Underground Train vibration
- Industrial plant unit installations
- Condition monitoring of high-precision machinery
A manual vibration survey directly assesses a specific vibration source – allowing for a more detailed understanding of its vibration signature. An automated survey entails deploying one or more vibration monitors. This can be set-up in such a way so as to transfer vibration data in real-time, allowing for a more dynamic approach in the assessment exercise.
