Vibration Monitoring for Civil Construction

Seismic Surveys monitors vibration and noise from civil construction projects to measure and document these effects transmitted to adjacent third-party structures. Our monitoring systems include sensors that measure both noise and vibrations caused by blasting, pile driving, demolition, or heavy equipment operation on these projects. With continual measurement using our state-of-the-art technology, our customers can adjust their operations to keep noise and vibration effects to accepted safe standards. In the event of a neighbor concern, these data are valuable protection against unwarranted claims and assist in addressing concerns.

Why Are Vibration and Noise Monitoring Important in Civil Construction?

Civil construction involves building infrastructure having to do with water, earth, or transport. Examples of these civil projects include:

Civil contractors must control construction vibrations and noise transmitted to adjacent structures from these projects to accepted safe levels.

Vibration and noise levels within accepted safe limits can still result in neighbor complaints and unwarranted claims. Collecting vibration and noise data at neighboring properties before and during construction activities is a civil contractor’s best tool in minimizing the risk of vibration-related claims from neighbors.
