Why Monitor Vibrations?

  • Comply with building codes.
  • Reduce risk of property damage, project delays, and increased costs.
  • Alert construction teams to mitigate excessive vibration.
  • Manage relations with neighboring property owners.
  • Provide documentation that help resolve any legal claims.

Does NYC Require Monitoring?

Section 1814.3 of the NYC Building Code and TPPN 10/88 require vibration monitoring of adjacent structures when construction activities involve:

  • Excavation and trenching
  • Blasting and demolition
  • Foundation work
  • Tunneling
  • Pile driving

Other Services

Pre-Construction Surveys

Pre-construction surveys are visual inspections of structures adjacent to a construction site. Required by NYC Building Code, Sections 1814.1 and 3309.4.3 as well as in TPPN 10/88.

Crack Monitoring

Crack gauges monitor changes in cracks identified in the survey. Building codes may require daily or weekly readings. Automated crack gauges eliminate site visits.

Optical Monitoring

Building codes may require optical monitoring of affected buildings. GEO's AMTS automated optical monitoring works around the clock without the cost of survey crews.

Dust Monitoring

Dust mitigation is required at most construction sites. GEO deploys real-time, automated dust monitors from Aeroqual.

Monitoring Plans

We work with project engineers to finalize monitoring plans in accordance with Sections 1814.3 and 3309.16 of the New York City Building Code.
