Residential Noise Surveys

Residential noise and vibration surveying assesses the level of noise in a residential development. If you’re planning a development in a residential area, you will need to conduct a noise survey to comply with the National Planning Policy Framework and British Standards and Good Practice Documents.

Your local authority will usually request a residential noise and vibration survey at planning stage. This is particularly the case for any development that is highlighted as having potential to significantly increase noise level, causing disruption to existing residents.

 

Residential Noise & Vibration Surveying with UKBC

Noise and vibration surveys will simultaneously investigate all possible noise sources, whether they’re related to transport, building services or people. Furthermore, we break down the data into a timeline, to measure the potential daytime and nighttime average noise levels. This is so we can better understand the acoustic footprint of the proposed development. UKBC’s service includes:

  • Fully trained engineers with extensive experience in the field.
  • Specifically tailored residential noise and vibration surveys to suit your project, budget and requirements of the local authority.
  • Short and long term testing, including multi-meter set ups to help determine the specification of your glazing.
  • Finally, we’ll produce a noise assessment report which is robust, concise and proves that you meet the requirements set.

With UKBC’s noise surveying service, you can be confident you are fully compliant with The Building Regulations. In order to carry out a noise and vibration survey, you should provide us with complete site plans, a secure location for our monitoring equipment and access to the site.
