Sensitive Structures

Seismic Surveys monitors vibration and noise from demolition, construction, and renovations in and around vibration-sensitive structures. Our monitoring systems include sensors that measure noise and vibrations caused by adjacent construction, demolition, or renovation on these projects. With continual measurement using our state-of-the-art technology, our customers can adjust operations to keep noise and vibration effects within established project standards for the sensitive structures of concern.

Why Are Vibration and Noise Monitoring Important For Sensitive Structures?

Sensitive structures include:

The age, construction, contents, or use of these sensitive structures require low-level vibration monitoring and alerting the project team if vibrations from activities within or adjacent to the sensitive structure approach established conservative standards or manufacturer specifications for these sensitive structures. We often conduct a background vibration and noise study to establish the noise and vibration levels a sensitive structure experiences through normal use. Using these data, we can assist the customer in determining a practical criterion for controlling vibration and noise effects from nearby work or before installing sensitive machinery and lab equipment. These data are invaluable for controlling the work and achieving a safe and successful completion of construction, demolition, or renovation adjacent to or within sensitive structures.
