Vibration Monitoring Services
We are California's leading provider in the measurement and assessment of vibration for construction projects. Whatever you needs, we have the expertise and equipment required to monitor and assess vibration levels. Our range of services include vibration monitoring our personnel on-site, through to long term unattended remote monitoring for projects lasting days, weeks, months or years.
Our Clients Include:
Our remote vibration monitoring system uploads data directly to the cloud
View vibration data online in real time
View and store online historical vibration data
Receive immediate vibration text and e-mail alerts
Remote Vibration Monitoring Services
Our team of vibration experts use leading edge technology to remotely monitor vibration at construction sites. Our vibration monitors are capable of continuously measuring peak particle velocity (PPV) in three axes for extended periods. Vibration levels are typically reported in units of inches per second (inch/s). All logged data is uploaded directly from the vibration monitor to a secure server for access by your project personnel.
We provide access to view vibration measurements in real time. Historical data can also be viewed ranging from the entire duration of the project down to a specific event. Noise and vibration events that exceed predefined thresholds will be recorded and available for playback. Additionally, the system can be automated to send alerts to your device.
Our team of experts carefully calibrate and optimize the system in compliance with state noise regulations and city noise ordinance so that our clients are notified if any specific threshold is exceeded. Our consultants are ready to discuss vibration mitigation measures as necessary. Our monitoring systems are managed by our acoustical engineering team.
Construction Vibration MonitoringWe monitor vibration produced by demolition and construction operations for long-term and short-term projects.
Vibration produced by construction and demolition operations often requires monitoring to prevent damage to existing structures or to ensure comfort for people nearby. We are experienced in implementing monitoring solutions to suit your needs.
Heavy equipment such as excavators and pile drivers can cause high peak particle velocity (PPV) vibration levels that may damage nearby buildings or cause discomfort to occupants. We are experienced in implementing monitoring standards and can provide monitoring solutions to suit your needs. We monitor vibration during construction operations including:
-Shoring system installation
We provide either attended or unattended vibration monitoring services to suit the project’s monitoring specifications.
Attended Vibration MonitoringVibration monitors will be set up at the required locations at the start of work. A monitoring technician will be present at the site at all times during the vibration-producing activity and can move the monitors as required as work locations change. The technician will keep a log of the vibration producing activities and can provide real-time data to the equipment operators. Our vibration monitors are equipped with wireless alarm beacons that give an instantaneous warning to the machine operators if a preset threshold is exceeded. Typically, the technician will download the logged monitoring data each day and produce a daily monitoring report for the contractor, indicating the causes of any threshold exceedances.
Unattended Vibration MonitoringUnattended vibration monitoring is often selected by contractors who do not require real-time vibration information, but need to protect themselves against possible future litigation. Vibration monitors will be set up at the required locations at the start of work and will continuously monitor for the required duration. The vibration monitoring systems can be equipped with wireless alarm beacons that give an instantaneous warning to the machine operators if a preset threshold is exceeded. The logged monitoring data is downloaded periodically during the project and a vibration monitoring report is supplied. On request, a technician can visit the construction site to move the meters or download the monitoring data for review.
Pile Driving, Trench Plate, and Sheet Pile Vibration MonitoringWe provide vibration and noise monitoring services for pile driving and other construction operations. We are flexible in providing vibration monitoring solutions to suit your needs.
Our pile driving vibration monitoring services include real-time vibration data and periodic vibration reports to your requirements. Our consultants provide analysis of vibration levels relative to local ordinances, vibration level prediction and Noise & Vibration Management Plans.
We are experienced in the measurement and assessment of vibration on construction projects, including:
-Pile driving vibration monitoring
-Sheet pile and trench plate installation and removal vibration monitoring
-General construction vibration monitoring
To supplement our vibration monitoring services, we provide:
-On-site technician service to provide real-time vibration data
-Periodic vibration level reports to your requirements
-Analysis of vibration levels relative to local ordinances or project requirements
-Vibration prediction and consulting services
-Vibration monitoring plans
