One of our client projects has been shortlisted for this year’s CEEQUAL Outstanding Achievement awards, which recognise the pinnacle of best practice and high environmental and social performance in civil engineering.
BFK, a joint venture between BAM Nuttall Ltd, Ferrovial and Kier Construction have been shortlisted for their work on Crossrail C300/410 Western Running Tunnels, a project which has featured extensive work by Anderson Acoustics on noise, vibration and community engagement.
The award submission includes work on:
– Management of ground-borne noise and vibration from sprayed concrete lining works,
– Management of ground-borne noise and vibration from the temporary construction railway, and
– Management of airborne noise impacts
We are delighted to be named for our outstanding work in a rolling programme of automated and attended noise and vibration monitoring, together with the development of an iPad app to record all observations, noise levels, and images of site activity.
Use of this technology enabled near real-time reporting which proved very effective in complaints handling procedures where a quick turnaround was required. At Bond Street station CCTV was used in conjunction with automated noise monitoring equipment to improve our ability to identify noise sources. This enabled better targeting of noise reduction training and the identification of noise being generated off-site, such as from local bars.
Details of the project can be found on the CEEQUAL website.
We are proud to be associated with such a successful project and look forward to taking the learning forward for future major construction noise and vibration projects including HS2, Silvertown Tunnel and Thames Tideway.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards dinner and ceremony at the Institution of Civil Engineers, One Great George Street in London on Monday 28th November.
