ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE MONITORING
Noise monitoring is becoming increasingly common to monitor the Environmental Noise levels being generated during demolition, piling, construction and heavy vehicle movement on sites. Environmental noise monitoring is frequently requested by the Local Authorities before works can commence to establish the baseline levels, long term noise monitoring can then be required for the duration of the project. We have a huge and well-supported hire fleet of well maintained modern monitors, our equipment is calibrated traceable to national standards.
