Casella adds vibration monitoring capability to Boundary Guardian   

Casella has launched a new version of its Boundary Guardian that features a ground-borne vibration monitoring option as well as the existing noise and dust monitoring functionality. This further enhances the capability of the Boundary Guardian, which is an essential tool for effective environmental monitoring at construction, demolition and process sites. One major London-based international construction company believes that they have saved over £120k in consultancy fees in one year thanks to the Boundary Guardian.            

Casella’s Boundary Guardian is a plug and play solution for web-based real-time remote monitoring of noise, dust and now vibration emissions, which enables users to ensure compliance with regulatory limits 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The solution is already proving to be extremely popular among construction and demolition companies, especially in London where an estimated 15 percent of airborne particulates are attributable to construction. Although noise and dust emissions commonly get the most attention, vibration from such applications as piling can create major structural integrity problems for neighbouring properties and many planning authorities are now cracking down on this.            

To ensure effective vibration monitoring, a tri-axial geophone is wired to the main BOUNDARY Guardian housing and records the maximum peak particle velocity within a five minute period. Collected data is available for review via a secure website and reports can be produced to prove compliance with planning limits. In addition, optional SMS alerts are available in the event that vibration levels exceed limits. This brings peace of mind to operators concerned about the close proximity of intense construction activity to nearby buildings, many of which could have historical significance.            

“The launch of the Boundary Guardian with vibration monitoring capability is another big step forward for controlling emissions from construction and demolition sites. No other environmental monitoring solution on the market offers the same level of functionality or performance,” said Shaun Knott, Business Development Manager at Casella. “With this version of the Boundary Guardian installed, site operators can keep up to date in real-time with their emissions and take action to reduce them if necessary.”
