Noise & Vibration

Noise & Vibration Monitoring

IKM’s noise and vibration specialists provide a range of services that ensure Regulatory approval, as well as on-site solutions.  We pride ourselves in helping clients to manage their environmental risk whilst maintaining compliance, from large scale construction and infrastructure projects to PPC permits and small scale developments.  We produce high quality, easy to understand reports and offer support to our clients from baseline design through to compliance.

Our specialists will work with you to develop an assessment tailored to your site’s requirements.  We can liaise with the regulator on your behalf and can provide training to allow your site operatives to undertake their own compliance monitoring onsite.
