Construction Noise Guidelines

The Association of Noise Consultants have released their 2021 Construction Noise Good Practice Guide on the preparation, submission and management of Section 61 consents.

It is generally accepted for construction sites where works are undertaken in close proximity to environmentally sensitive resources or where management of the construction programme is a key consideration, that seeking prior consent under Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 can be an effective way of ensuring that the desired project outcomes are achieved whilst affording the necessary level of protection to those potentially at risk from construction noise and vibration effects. However, demolition and construction can be complex and variable, making reliable predictions and assessments at times challenging, despite, and sometimes because of, the defined process identified in the British Standard 5228, which is the statutory Code of Practice attached to the Control of Pollution Act 1974.

Sol Acoustics has significant experience in the prediction, control and on-going monitoring of Construction Noise and Vibration with successful sites operated across the United Kingdom. To find out how we can help with your project please get in touch.
