Noise Measurement

Traffic noise, railroad equipment, aircraft overflight – all affect your neighbors and operation. Rely on GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech to ensure you meet HUD standards.

Outside of blasting, noise levels produced by operations are a significant source of concerns. Noise levels emanate from major pieces of equipment, stationary plants and mobile equipment. Point sources, line sources and multiple location noise sources produce varying off-site conditions. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech has specialty expertise in this area. Whether at permanent locations or through individual monitoring with field technicians, we provide full-service measurement and evaluation of noise.

Noise level measurement requires monitoring equipment and analysis that exceeds a standard review. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech uses Type 1 laboratory grade noise level monitoring equipment and environmental analyzers to evaluate community levels. This equipment exceeds the normal community level analyzer and provides measurement that can be defended without question. When longer-term measurements are necessary our Re:mote Monitoring technology has the flexibility to be configured for noise level measurement.

Noise levels are monitored over multiple day and month periods, producing long-term noise trends to be evaluated. Such trends reflect environmental conditions that may apply to a site on a week by week or seasonal basis. Noise levels may also be a source of concern when they occur on building interiors. Noise level measurements for interior wall and floor transmission may be necessary to determine correct construction.

When new construction may affect noise levels within a neighborhood, GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech can evaluate the noise produced and provide a determination of compliance to local ordinances and regulations. Additionally, traffic noise, railroad equipment and aircraft overflights all affect the ability of a developer to obtain government financing. GeoSonics/Vibra-Tech’s experience and monitoring ability includes noise level certification to meet HUD standards.
