Update of noise database for prediction of noise on construction and open sites
Hepworth Acoustics Ltd was commissioned by Defra to produce an up-to-date database of noise emissions from equipment used on construction and open sites. An existing construction plant noise database is contained in Annex C, Part 1 of British Standard 5228 'Noise and vibration control on construction and open sites'.
This database is presented with the intention that it may be useful to the practitioner, as it represents a recent inventory of construction noise sources.
