The Alfred Hospital

Octave Acoustics was engaged to carry out long term monitoring to ensure that noise and vibration impacts associated with demolition and construction activities did not adversely affect sensitive areas within the hospital. Vibration criteria included limits for:

  1. Occupant comfort (VDV and mm/s) based on BS6472
  2. Building damage (frequency dependant mm/s) based on DIN 4150

Octave Acoustics deployed web-enabled noise and vibration meters that were set to send text and email alerts to nominated stakeholders on exceedance of the set limits.
