Noise created during the construction phase of any project can have large impacts on surrounding neighbors.  Because construction is a part of everyday life, is vital for economic growth and is “temporary,” people are generally more forgiving of construction related noise than permanent noise sources.  However, construction machinery is typically large, loud and unavoidably essential to the construction process.  HFP can predict the level of expected impact and help design mitigation strategies.  Services we provide include

  • Noise impact predictions based on specified equipment or types of equipment
  • Noise mitigation design
  • 3-D Computer noise modeling
  • Environmental sound and vibration surveys for ambient conditions
  • Environmental sound and vibration monitoring during construction phase
  • Diagnostic sound level testing of key equipment
  • Regulatory compliance assessment
  • Noise mitigation equipment specification


HFP has unique experience with pile driving operations in particular.  We have made sound level measurements of various types of pile driving equipment located in various locations within the western hemisphere. 

Certain construction activities are simply put very loud, unavoidable and difficult to mitigate.  HFP can work with the client to develop novel strategies to mitigate challenging noise issues.
