Vibration Monitoring

Many construction activities associated with building and infrastructure construction involve vibration inducing activities (pile driving, bridge demolition and heavy equipment traffic).  Often through a combination of proactive contractors and concerned project owners, vibration monitoring (sometimes along with pre- and post-construction condition surveys) is needed to be performed in support of the project construction.

A well designed vibration monitoring program often includes a physical survey of the cosmetic condition of surrounding structures such as buildings, bridges and utilities.

It is important to select vibration monitoring specifications that appropriately match construction induced vibrations and are not derived from mine or quarry blasting vibration specifications.
