British Standard 5228 covers noise and vibration control on construction and open sites.
BS 5228 noise assessments are requried to undertake background noise measurements similar to BS 4142; all proposed equipment for the construction site will be assessed in terms of predicted noise levels at the nearest noise sensitive dwellings/buildings.
BS5228 provides an extensive sound emission data list for many items of plant, machinery and vehicles which is used within the predictive calculations; if reliable noise data cannot be found Sound Planning can test similar equipment on existing sites.
Please direct BS5228 noise assessment enquiries to Dan Thomas (Sound Planning - Farnham)
