ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE MONITORING

Noise monitoring is becoming increasingly common to monitor the 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.

Environmental monitoring with the help of dust, noise, and vibration sensors is crucial for ensuring the safety and well-being of workers and the community living near construction sites. By proactively monitoring and addressing environmental concerns, construction companies can minimize any negative impacts and maintain a healthy and sustainable working environment.


Overall, environmental monitoring helps ensure that construction projects are carried out in a sustainable and responsible manner, minimising harm to the environment and enhancing the overall quality of life for the community. It also helps companies maintain a positive reputation and avoid potential legal issues related to environmental compliance.
