The upcoming meeting will provide an overview of the project, with specific details on the phasing of the work and emphasis on how the construction logistics will be handled in order to mitigate noise, vibration, and disturbance.

The project team recently completed an exercise in which we simulated various construction activities at several locations throughout the building. Our acoustician has been taking baseline readings with a handheld device and has installed accelerometers that will be remotely monitoring the vibration levels throughout the course of the project. We are working with the data gathered by our acoustician and reports submitted by building occupants to determine to type and degree of noise and vibration that is acceptable to building occupants. Please submit any records that you have of observable noise or vibration from 4/13 through 4/17 either electronically to Mike Beatrice (mbeatrice@torcon.com) or to SH Suite 313 so that we can include your information with our other collected data.
