Noise Prevention Techniques

The aim is to surround a concrete pumping system that include a remixer and a Putzmeister BSA 2110 HP-D Trailer-Mounted Concrete Pump (SWL 109dB) within an acoustic shed to minimise the ambient night-time noise level.

Supplier information anticipates that the installation of the acoustic shed will reduce this number by up to 30 dB bringing the noise down to a more acceptable level.

By using the Soundex Acoustic Shed we are adopting best practical means to mitigate the noise from these activities to a level below the Noise Insulation/Temporary Re-housing (NI/TRH) criteria as defined in the Crossrail Act 2009.

The shed will be insulated with sound proofing materials which will absorb and prevents sound waves from passing out of the container to the surrounding environment.

The use of this robust acoustic enclosure to reduce noise levels from the works demonstrates our effort to maintain good relations with the surrounding community and consider the effect of our works on the wider world.
