Sound & Vibration Monitoring

Sound and Vibration Monitoring

With the tightening of compliance requirements and the aging buildings and infrastructures, construction work such as blasting, trench excavation, tunnel digging, pile driving or drilling can generate large amounts of noise and vibration which must be controlled.   

Noise and vibration monitoring allows you to:

  • Optimize risk management by avoiding complaints, damage payouts and unplanned work stoppages, enabling better control of costs and schedules;
  • Improve protection of vibration-sensitive structures by controlling the vibration they are exposed to;
  • Generate detailed documentation to prove compliance with contract requirements or in the event of litigation. 

The SVi offers a choice of manual measuring or automated options to suit your needs.
