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. Independent consultants with over 30 years experience in environmental vibration, dust & noise monitoring in the construction industry, we can offer a wide range of equipment to suit your project and can tailor the services to meet your requirements.


Vibration Monitoring Services is one of the latest group of successful companies to join leading edge schemes, designed to help industry improve its' safety record. We are accredited through the SafeContractor and Construction Line schemes which recognise very high standards of Health and Safety practice amongst UK contractors.


Key Services:

Demolition Vibration Monitoring

Demolition vibration monitoring is measuring Peak Particle Velocity (PPV) of heavy works being carried out adjacent to properties or sensitive structures like Listed Buildings, we work alongside the contractor to prevent vibration levels reaching critical levels.


Piling Vibration Monitoring

Ground vibration monitoring of a site adjacent to sensitive structures or underground gas mains, water and sewer pipes, working with contractors to be fully compliant to BS7385, BS5228 & DIN4150-2.


Building Vibration Monitoring

If your building is suffering from vibration and upsetting the occupants and you need to find out the cause, we can carry out a survey to detect the cause.


Environmental Noise Monitoring

Class 1 Noise Monitors - We can measure the noise levels (e.g Laeq, LA90, LA10, LAmax) on your demolition / construction project and let your Site Manager know when the levels reach critical levels.


Air Quality - Dust Monitoring

Dust Monitoring using MCerts Certified Ambient particulate monitors. We can monitor the PM1, PM2.5 & PM10 levels simultaneously on your construction project and let your managers know when the levels reach critical levels.


Hand Arm & Whole Body Vibration Surveys

If you need to determine whether your staff are at risk of vibration related injuries during the daily use of machinery, we can carry out a survey using the most up to date equipment and make recommendations on the use of the equipment to minimize injuries.


Machine Vibration Surveys

Detecting faults within rotating machinery such as motors, gearboxes, chiller units and generators.


Thermal Imaging Surveys

Surveys of distribution boards, switchgear, control panels, motors and gearboxes to determine faults and potential repairs early on using Fluke Cameras which provide quality imaging.


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


By monitoring vibration levels, site personnel can: 


  • Prevent potential structural damage: Vibration monitoring allows site personnel to identify potential risks to nearby buildings and take corrective action to mitigate them. 
  • Control vibration levels:  By monitoring vibration levels, site personnel 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 personnel 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. 


By using vibration monitoring, site personnel can take proactive measures to protect surrounding buildings and ensure the safety of the public and workers on site. 


This includes: 

  • Implementing vibration mitigation measures, such as piling or drilling techniques that minimize vibration transmission. 
  • Adjusting construction activities to reduce vibration levels. 
  • Conducting regular monitoring and testing to ensure that vibration levels remain within acceptable limits.
