Vibration Monitoring

A noise-free environment is the best scenario that all planners aim for when they are preparing a new project or undertaking a major construction or building. Noise-free may mean that sound from within the structure is not heard beyond its walls, or it may mean eliminating the presence of intrusive noise from outside. No matter what your goal is, the fact of the matter is that during the building and works process, vibration monitoring in Sydney is essential.

Here at Koikas Acoustics, we are acoustic engineers with a huge amount of experience and expertise in noise and vibration. We provide professional assessments to ensure compliance is achieved with regulatory authorities for Development Application and monitor noise and vibration during the construction stage. We are closing in on almost three decades serving the Sydney market in this regard and have completed over 4,000 projects, all of which met the standards that they were expected to through acoustic assessment and testing.We like to do things right from the outset and that starts by creating a friendly and personal rapport with our clients. We want to understand your goals and the compliance issues that you face and we are confident that no matter how complex or challenging they are, or how limited your timeframe is to achieve them, we will be able to determine the most cost-effective solution. Our vibration monitoring services are second to none and will stand you in good stead throughout your project.

Vibration Monitoring Benefits

As we are all more than aware, in the construction industry the movement of large vehicles, the digging of earth and the use of heavy-duty machinery result in a lot of noise and a considerable amount of vibration.

At Koikas Acoustics, we deliver vibration monitoring services that save our clients thousands of dollars every year. One of the major ways in which this is achieved is in the prevention of potential structural damage during construction or, indeed, demolition. With our alarm system in place, construction workers will be alerted as soon as when works are exceeding the limits that were set for the project.

While the last thing you want to happen is for your construction project to be compromised, there is a huge duty of care placed on construction companies in terms of the safety and wellbeing of their workforce. Having industrial vibration monitoring in place ensures that they can continue to work and focus on doing what they do best, with full knowledge that should vibration levels exceed their set limits, they will be alerted to the fact and take necessary action.

A vibration consultant has the ability to set thresholds and monitor vibration levels will safeguard your building and protect you from breaching the compliance requirements that are in place.

How Vibration Monitoring Bolster the Viability of Your Sydney Project

Here at Koikas Acoustics, we are available to discuss the requirements specific to your project and guarantee that our approach will deliver a timely result that does not sacrifice on quality. All of our vibration consultants are MAAS (Members of the Australian Acoustical Society) and so you can expect to speak with professionals who are well versed in the acoustical and vibration disciplinary fields.

Building vibration monitoring is just one of the many services that we deliver that results in noise reduction and so to learn more about how we could bolster the viability of your project give us a call today.

A vibration-free environment is the best scenario that all planners aim for when they are preparing a new project or undertaking a major construction or building. Construction vibration monitoring will be able to monitor and create a management plan for your industrial site.

Construction Vibration Monitoring Professionals

Construction vibration monitoring is the process of detecting ground movements brought about through construction, demolition and engineering projects and recording them. Movement of heavy machinery or the use of equipment will all create a certain level of vibration in the environment, but whether there is a negligible or a damaging effect will vary.

To assess the potential impact your construction project will have, specialist assessments are necessary to meet the compliance standards in place. The good news is that you have found the best team in the business to facilitate this for you.

At Koikas Acoustics, we have earned a fantastic reputation throughout Sydney and beyond as go-to noise and vibration engineers. Whether you are facing a tight deadline or if you just realised that you have overlooked something that may threaten your schedule, rest assured that we have the capabilities to resolve the matter successfully.

We are always committed to meeting the construction vibration monitoring standards required to keep our clients’ projects within compliance . Our success rate speaks for itself in the sense that since 1992 we have yet to fail in delivering professional assessments and guidance that meet the applicable criteria.

You can depend on us for a truthful, objective assessment of your project and site, and we will provide you with clearly labelled, concise and easy to read reports. We like to keep things personal, and so a friendly voice or face will always welcome and deal with you.

Effects on Surrounding Buildings and Structures

Here at Koikas Acoustics, one of the primary considerations required in all projects is the impact that the works carried out could potentially have on the surrounding buildings and structures. Your project might appear to be relatively isolated and unlikely to have any perceptible effect on the buildings near it. For example, consider the implications of the presence of vibration-sensitive machines and equipment in hospitals, clinics and universities.

Our construction vibration monitoring services are designed to afford you a degree of accuracy that is second to none. Our instruments are traceable to NATA calibration certification and achieve accurate and precise monitoring. We also harness the power of technology and use the latest computer modelling programs to analyse and predict the impact that vibration will have on surrounding structures.

While the vibration levels anticipated on your project can fall below the range that typically does no damage to buildings, the presence of historic structures and buildings can change the approach needed and may require special care. Lower levels of vibration can have a damaging effect on these structures, so having a team of professionals fully and comprehensively assess your site for construction noise and vibration is essential to remain compliant and complete your project with no unwanted effects.

Great service and excellent acoustic report from Koikas Acoustics. James who attended our site was really efficient, professional and friendly. James brought along a variety of premade flooring samples, so we had a lot of confidence in the outcomes, which enabled us to select the correct sound proofing mix to meet our acoustic by-laws. Highly recommended.

I am a project manager at DMC Building Group. We are a renovation company that works in the Sydney region. We recently engaged Koikas Acoustics to prepare a report for us in relation to a unit renovation at Lindfield to address the concerns of the body corporate. The service from Nick and his team was outstanding and the report was prepared and delivered on time and on budget. We could not be happier with their service. Highly recommended.
