Ground Borne Vibration Monitoring – Bovis Homes

Dragonfly Consulting has undertaken a scheme of construction site noise and ground borne vibration monitoring at a number of sites around the North of England and the Midlands. The client, a national house builder, has recently carried out a program of piling and vibro-compaction. As part of their responsibilities towards existing residents they employed Dragonfly Consulting to monitor levels of ground borne vibration at nearby properties to establish that vibration levels were not affecting the structural integrity of nearby buildings and to provide early warning of any levels of vibration which may cause alarm and distress to homeowners. Services provided by Dragonfly Consulting included generated alerts when vibration levels exceeded predetermined limits and remote monitoring of vibration levels.
