Demolition Noise Pollution: What Contractors Should Do Building and construction projects are generally huge development projects and they usually take place in quiet localities. Some big projects may not take from scratch as some will involve the removal of old structures or old buildings, and to remove them, a demolition process is necessary. As dangerous as it is, it is also noisy work. Moreover, most demolitions occur in areas that are already developed and here the issues arise.

Demolition Noise Pollution: What Contractors Should Do The noise from demolition sites can create problems for noise sensitive areas such as hospitals, nursing homes, mental institutions, schools, churches and private residences. Noise pollution is unwelcomed in these places as it would disturb their peace. Such issues will arise if workers at sites will put up effective noise barriers.

Demolition Noise Pollution: What Contractors Should Do Why do construction and demolition works generate excessive amount of noise? For one, it is because they are often carried in open spaces. For two, though they are temporary works, they create unbearable noise while they last. Lastly, site and equipment activities carry different levels of noise and vibration which can vary during different phases of work.
