About the talk:
Please join us for an evening presentation that will provide details of the lessons learned managing noise and vibration on HS2 C1, during the construction of the Chiltern Tunnels and Colne Valley Viaduct, covering:
- The challenges that arose monitoring noise in rural locations during 24/7 civils works on large and linear sites and the innovations that have been employed to overcome these challenges, including details of a noise recognition algorithm trial and an ongoing trial using MEMs microphones to triangulate the source of exceedances.
- The work that was undertaken to control low frequency noise during the operation of a precast concrete segment factory that was generating complaints at distances up to 5 km. Consideration is given to noise metrics and assessment methods, noise propagation models, building acoustics factors both within the factory but also at the receptors, physical mitigation measures and BPM, community response and engagement, and recommendations for future projects.
- The work that was undertaken to control ground-borne noise and vibration during the construction of the Chiltern Tunnels and cross passages. This includes the results of noise and vibration monitoring data obtained during tunnelling through predominantly chalk substrate ranging 25m to 60m overburden. It provides lessons learned on making large scale temporary rehousing offers, and successfully demonstrates how tunnels can be constructed underneath residential areas whilst reducing adverse impacts on the occupants of people living and working above the tunnels.
It should be of interest to future civils projects as well as anyone with an interest in the control of noise and vibration from construction.
