Due to the high density of building in London and the South East, there is often a requirement for construction vibration monitoring. Party wall surveyors frequently request on behalf of their clients that vibration levels are continuously monitored in order to avoid questions of liability for damage caused by the operations on a particular site. Construction operations usually involve the use of heavy equipment which can cause construction vibration. In particular, piling and basement excavation can be high-risk activities for causing ground vibration. This can be a nuisance to neighbours and can also cause structural damage to neighbouring buildings and/or equipment. At Benchmark Site Engineering Services Ltd we own a number of construction vibration monitoring devices which measure construction vibration to a high degree of accuracy. Our Vibe monitors detect the smallest vibrations, and are set up to automatically email alerts when construction vibration reaches a predetermined threshold. Email recipients can be specified by the client to include the structural engineer, party wall surveyor and the site team, so that any potentially damaging construction vibration is detected straight away and decisions can be made immediately about whether operations need to temporarily cease whilst the situation is assessed. Our clients appreciate the continuous vibration monitoring that we can provide. If you would like to discuss your requirements for construction vibration monitoring feel free to call us for a no-obligation consultation.
