BS5228 provides guidance on how to protect people from noise and vibration, who live or work in close proximity to any construction sites. Noise level predictions are calculated to assess the noise impact level of the construction work, and mitigation methods are detailed to reduce the noise level of the construction operations. Alternate construction methodologies may be recommended to further reduce the noise impact of the activities as part of the S61 (Section 61).
BS5228 part 2 also provides guidance on the potential impact of vibration levels different construction methodologies produce, in either PPV (Peak Particle Velocity), or VDV (Vibration Dose Value). These are used to assess whether any buildings or structures surrounding the construction site are at risk of cosmetic or structural damage. Attended and/or unattended vibration monitoring is usually part of a S61 application, which focuses on setting appropriate vibration trigger limits for the age, condition, and status (grade listed buildings) to protect the structures against damage.
