VIBRATION MONITORING SERVICES

At Vibration Monitoring Services we are able to offer a wide range of services to suit your requirements from Noise, Dust and Vibration Monitoring during Demolition, Construction and Piling to Machinery Vibration & Thermal Imaging Surveys. 


We are independent consultants with over 30 years experience in environmental monitoring in the construction industry, using an extensive range of monitoring equipment to suit your project and can tailor the services to meet your requirements.


Vibration Monitoring Services are accredited through the SafeContractor and ConstructionLine schemes which recognise very high standards of Health and Safety practice amongst UK contractors. Alongside our Gold membership with ConstructionLine we are also verified on Builder's Profile.


Key Services:

Construction Vibration Monitoring

vibration monitoring is measuring Peak Particle Velocity (PPV) during heavy works which have the potential to cause the most disruption to neighbouring receptors for example properties or sensitive structures such as Listed Buildings, we work alongside the contractor to prevent vibration levels reaching critical levels.


Piling Vibration Monitoring

Percussive piling methods can create both intrusive noise and vibration at local receptors and can continue for a long period of time, depending on the size of the new development.  Ground vibration monitoring is critical in preventing vibration affecting sensitive structures or underground gas mains, water and sewer pipes.  Helping contractors to be fully compliant to BS7385, BS5228 & DIN4150-2.


Building Vibration Monitoring

Buildings surrounding or adjacent to construction and demolition sites can suffer from vibration and upset the occupants, if you are receiving complaints we can assist with vibration monitoring to keep you informed of the levels being transmitted.


Environmental Noise Monitoring

Following the requirements in Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 our Class 1 Noise Monitors can measure the noise levels (e.g Laeq, LA90, LA10, LAmax) on your construction project and keep your Site Manager informed when the noise generated reaches critical levels.


Air Quality - Dust Monitoring

Dust Monitoring using MCerts Certified monitors to follow the 'IAQM Guidance on Monitoring in the Vicinity of Demolition and Construction Sites (Oct 2018)' and our DM30 Dustsens can monitor the PM1, PM2.5 & PM10 levels simultaneously on your construction site and notify Site Mangers immediately when present limits are breached. 


Hand Arm & Whole Body Vibration Surveys

If you need to determine whether your staff are at risk of vibration related injuries and need to comply with Control of Vibration at Work Regulations 2005, we can monitor their daily use of hand tools and machinery by carrying out out a HAV survey and issuing a report, this gives recommendations on the use of the equipment to minimize injuries.


Machine Vibration Surveys

Implementing monitoring will enable you to minimise maintenance costs and maximise your plant availability, detecting faults within rotating machinery such as motors, gearboxes, chiller units and generators using vibration analysis. Vibration surveys offer a huge money saving method of reducing downtime, meeting Health & Safety Legislation and carrying out repairs within your planned shutdowns.


Thermal Imaging Surveys

Using Fluke Cameras such as the Ti25 provides you with good quality imaging which can be used in a wide variety of applications. Our surveys of distribution boards, control panels, motors and gearboxes determine faults and potential repairs in detailed reports.


What is PPV - Peak Particle Velocity

Ground vibration is measured in terms of Peak Particle Velocity (PPV) with units in mm/s (Millimetres Per Second). It should be noted that the PPV refers to the movement within the ground of molecular particles and not surface movement.

Vibration Monitoring - Essential Tool


Vibration monitoring is an essential tool in ensuring the safety and integrity of surrounding structures during construction, demolition, and piling activities. 


By monitoring vibration levels, your site team can: 


  • Prevent potential structural damage, Vibration monitoring allows Site Managers to identify potential risks to nearby buildings and take corrective action to mitigate them. 
  • Control vibration levels,  by monitoring vibration levels, Site Managers can ensure that they are within acceptable limits, reducing the risk of damage to surrounding structures.
  • Reduce the risk of long-term effects, prolonged exposure to vibration can cause cumulative damage to structures over time. Vibration monitoring enables Site Managers to identify and address any potential issues before they become major problems.
  • Ensure compliance with regulations, vibration monitoring is often required by law or regulatory bodies to ensure that construction activities do not cause unacceptable levels of vibration to nearby structures. 


With using vibration monitoring, your Site Managers can take proactive measures to protect surrounding buildings and ensure the safety of the public and workers on site.
