Construction Site Monitoring

Construction site monitoring is an accurate and precise way to keep track of a construction project. This kind of assessment is performed so that environmental conditions do not breach the health impact and planning conditions set by the local authorities.

Negligence in providing accurate monitoring and mitigation procedures can result in the refusal of planning permission, produce a negative impact on the health of those surrounding these environments and incur regulatory penalties. It is, therefore, crucial to monitor and assess these spaces.

The instrumentation used during these assessments is the best in the market, from class A Sound Level Meters for noise assessments, nephelometers for dust monitoring to accelerometers and geophones for vibration measurements. Xi can undertake long monitoring measurements as well as short term measurements that will assess the potential impact. All the data collected is analysed according to the relative standards using powerful analysis tools such as MATLAB. These tools will allow us to present this data in a clear and understandable manner so that our clients get a clear picture of the situation and next steps to follow.

To ensure the correct assessment techniques are being used and that the monitoring fulfills the legal requirements, Xi makes use of the measurement and analysis techniques set by standards such as BS5228, BS4142, BS 6472-1, the National Air Quality Objectives 1997 or the Control at Noise regulations 2005.
