In addition to
vibration and acoustical design,
we are fully-equipped with state-of-the-art
test and measurement instrumentation
short term as well as
long term vibration and noise
monitoring systems at your facilities and projects.
From airborne noise to groundborne vibration to blasting to underwater noise,
we can help make your project a success.
Noise monitoring is used to record noise levels
at property lines as part of determining compliance with local
ordinances under operation or during construction. We also use noise monitoring
data as part of full 3-D computer-based environmental
noise evaluation of facilities and construction sites.
Workplace noise regulations are intended to protect workers against long-term
hearing loss. We offer monitoring and testing services to determine noise dose
and time-weighted average exposure to
Multiple monitoring options are available,
including a "remote-monitoring" service that can save you money.
Micro-vibration monitoring is sometimes needed to protect a sensitive
facility -- for example, a
sensitive laboratory -- from construction vibration.
Because fast-track construction schedules and ongoing protection
of high-yield production are often in conflict, monitoring is
essential in maintaining the goals of both.
In addition, compact sites and large infrastructure projects
put homeowners and commercial neigbors at risk of vibration-induced structural damage due
to construction activities like soil compaction, pile driving, and blasting.
Vibration monitoring provides both real-time protection against high vibration levels
as well as historical data to help assess whether damage was due to adjacent jobsites.
Underwater construction activities (especially
underwater piling) put marine species
at risk. Hydroacoustic (underwater sound) monitoring is used to meet standards imposed on
projects by NOAA and other agencies. All of our monitoring options are available for underwater
as well as above-water projects. Our single-instrument platform means that we can integrate
underwater noise measurement and underwater sound monitirong tasks with traditional airborne
noise and groundborne vibration monitoring required by many projects.
We can deploy single- and multi-channel instruments for monitoring of noise and vibration.
Short-term and long-term monitoring options are available. Our systems can provide real-time
data and issue warnings/alarms via email and SMS. Web-based interfaces allow project managers
and community stakeholders to see data in real time. On projects where we are involved prior
to major construction activities, we can assist in the development of vibration and noise
control plans as required by project specifications.
Our background in sensitive facilities design and environmental noise modeling makes us
uniquely qualified to supply complete planning and noise and vibration monitoring solutions.
We invite you to contact us to discuss not only your
monitoring needs but also the design and deployment of corrective measures, if they become necessary.
