Noise and Vibration

In many instances the benefits of a driven pile are often overlooked due to perceived issues relating to noise and vibration. While it is important to identify and evaluate the risks, it has been proven over and over that pile driving noise is tolerable and vibration levels easily controlled to comply with the guidelines for construction sites contained within BS 5228, BS7385 and Eurocode 3. NPL will provide specialised equipment to monitor noise and vibration during piling work as required.

Our team has vast experience relating to piling in sensitive areas adjacent to residential properties, schools and hospitals.  We have developed tried and tested systems of work which will ensure that pile driving operations will have minimal affect to your project.

At Northern Piling our aim is to manage the risk at acceptable cost, not elimination of the risk at whatever the cost.
