Basement Construction Vibration Guideline
Construction plays a crucial role in the ongoing development of the Gold Coast.
As our population grows, we can expect more buildings to be constructed in populated areas.
This can create noise and vibration impacts for those living, visiting and working nearby. The construction industry needs to respond by appropriately managing noise and vibration issues for basement construction.
Our new Basement Construction Vibration Guideline outlines our requirements for basement vibration management, including a measurable standard of what is acceptable for vibration and how to monitor.
It seeks to balance the need for new construction with reasonable community expectations by encouraging best practice.
Those involved with basement construction are advised to plan projects in accordance with this guideline. This will be referenced in future development conditions for basement construction.
