Industrial and urban noise and vibration

Looking beyond audible noise to a range of factors including vibration impacts on buildings, natural environments, and activities or services taking place nearby.

What is industrial and urban noise and vibration?

Noise and vibration impacts go hand-in-hand and are often required to be assessed for major projects and at diverse locations, including built environments, remote regional areas and industrial worksites.

Environmental legislation considers noise as a type of environmental pollution, capable of causing harm to humans, facilities and ecosystems.

Potential vibration impacts must also be considered as part of an environmental noise impact assessment, including impacts due to structural-borne regenerated noise, ground-borne vibration or underwater vibration. This includes looking at existing and future vibration sources; geological conditions; potential damage to existing structures, buildings or the natural environment; and the effects of vibration on activities, services and high risk sensitive receptors in the vicinity.

At Trinity Consultants Australia, we support our clients at all stages of project cycles from conducting due diligence and screening assessments, to assisting with permits/licences for development application, and compliance and assurance testing.
