When do you need an environmental noise survey and what's involved?

Surveys are best carried out before work starts on site as we need to measure the background noise level present due to nearby environmental noise sources and not the noise generated by construction activities.

The survey will usually involve installing data-logging sound level meters at locations around the site. These will be left un-manned to take readings for a 24/48+ hour period. Additional manned measurements are made as necessary and the data-logging equipment collected, downloaded and data processed back at the office to produce a technical report.
