Vibration Mitigation

Back To Top

A common issue in high rise buildings is high ambient noise levels in occupied space. Often times this a result of structure-induced vibration, typically caused by mechanical equipment or riser systems that are rigidly connected to building structure. As the induced vibration travels through floor slabs and shear walls, these excitable mediums begin to act as speakers, thereby creating vibration induced noise.

Parklane provides a turnkey service in mitigating structure-borne vibration concerns through defined source identification, anti-vibration component selection, and final system integration/calibration.

Process:

Parklane’s Vibration Mitigation Service is carried out in the following fundamental steps:

  1. Source identification: Parklane’s anti-vibration solutions process begins with a top-to-bottom source review by Parklane’s vibration specialists. This review is done in conjunction with the acting Consultant, referencing all vibratory readings taken at the receiver point and tracing them back to any rigidly mounted mechanical systems.
  2. Component Selection: Once all sources have been identified, field data is compiled and cross-referenced with all applicable source operational data. Parklane than sources lab tested anti-vibration products from trusted suppliers.
  3. Engineered Design: Parklane’s engineering team completes detailed integration design, such as new structural support requirements, piping modification, and equipment disconnect requirements.
  4. Execution: Parklane’s execution team then works closely with building owners/managers in the final implementation and calibration of the new anti-vibration solution.
