Problems created by vibrations range from nuisance all the way to structural failure. Vibrations can arise from people’s activity, machines, vehicles and more. Some environments, such as specialist laboratories and medical facilities, need to be fully isolated from vibration.
We can map the dynamic behaviour of existing and potential structures to analyse the effect of vibrations and identify design interventions or measures to minimise nuisance, maximise safety and provide dampening for critical environments.
These solutions improve operations for our clients and increase the comfort and safety of their buildings. We can also enable projects to proceed where they might have appeared impossible, for example siting a hospital intensive care unit above a car park.
