Sound Planning conducts vibration assessments using tri-axial accelerometers; measuring vibration levels against relevant British Standards:

BS 6472 – Human response to vibration

BS 7385 – Building response to vibration

Equipment assesses vibration levels in one third octave bands (or narrow band if required) in order to accurately assess problem frequencies.

A vibration assessment is usually required by local planning authorities when new buildings are to be constructed near existing railway lines.

Vibration mitigation measures may be required and are included in Sound Planning’s mitigation strategies.
