When is Vibration Monitoring required?
Vibration Monitoring is increasingly required for many types of construction activities including bedrock blasting, structural demolition, pile driving, equipment operation during site preparation, and support of excavation. The requirements for vibration monitoring are detailed in TPPN 10/88 for landmark buildings, and section 1814.3 of the NYC building code. Our devices can continuously record the measured peak particle velocity (PPV) to prevent the construction activity does not reach a level to damage the surrounding buildings. We can help provide vibration monitoring for your construction activities.
We have the capabilities to provide the following services:
• Monitor your construction activities with our highly accurate monitoring systems.
• Remote alerts of readings exceeding predefined limits.
• Highly skilled on-site technicians.
• Thorough and timely summary report.
BEPC starts each vibration monitoring job by thoroughly analyzing the surrounding area and soil conditions, and selecting the optimal number and locations required to accurately measure vibrations. We will prepare a vibration monitoring control plan, which will set the required threshold and help outline the proper actions to take if a reading above the thresholds is recorded. Our inspectors will install the units with cellular modems providing daily readings, as well as instantaneous warnings if a high reading is recorded. BEPC will monitor the units and provide weekly summaries of the recordings from each unit.
