We develop construction noise and vibration criteria to address vibration damage potential to nearby buildings and sensitive structures, and vibration annoyance or disruption potential for occupants of nearby buildings.
  • Act as a knowledgeable envoy between the project and affected neighbors to seek non-standard solutions

  • Establish reasonable and acceptable noise and vibration limits

  • Predict noise and vibration caused by construction equipment or building demolition

  • Employ noise control measures most effectively

  • Find lower impact construction methods

  • Monitor noise, underwater noise, and/or vibration to substantiate compliance with established limits

  • Create court-ready records of noise and vibration levels

  • Make public presentations
