Noise and Vibration Baseline Monitoring | Arcus Consultancy Services


Noise and Vibration Baseline Monitoring – Glasgow

Client – Construction Management Consultancy

Scope – Provided noise and vibration monitoring at short notice to evaluate the baseline acoustic and vibration environment at potential sensitive receptors. Monitoring was undertaken at eight locations, and carried out over a 1 week period for comparison during construction of a new gas pipeline under the River Clyde across the bridge.

Measurements were used to provide baseline levels according to BS5228-1 and BS5228-2 for noise and vibration respectively.  A concise report was produced which summarised the ambient noise levels in terms of daytime, evening and night-time periods.  Vibration values were provided in VDV values.
