Noise and vibration assessments
Noise and vibration impacts from construction and demolition activities have the potential to cause high levels of disturbance. Especially, when working near to noise sensitive locations. So, we always work to ensure a “best practicable means” approach, to protect the public.
We work with our clients to create a bespoke plan for their project type. Ensuring we have all the correct equipment in the correct locations to monitor any potential noise and vibration problems.
Our consultants will always determine local policy requirements before starting out. This is because, noise policies often differ between Local Authorities. By understanding all the requirements from the outset, our report can be tailored to suit local requirements.
Section 61 consent applications
Section 61 of The Control of Pollution Act 1974 sets out the structure for the managerial process. When hiring SSC, we will provide technical support to the contractor and engage with Local Authorities when required. As part of the assessment, we supply predictions, limits, equipment, methods, and mitigation measures. These will then need to be adhered to on site when the Section 61 limits are set.
Noise and vibration monitoring
We have a range of autonomous noise and vibration monitoring stations. Our stations have the facility to offer mains (230V and 110V), battery or solar powered stations. Therefore, accommodating all short- and long-term noise and vibration monitoring requirements.
