    Tunnel Construction and Underground Mining Industry

    Dust can pose a particular hazard for people working in enclosed spaces such as in tunnel construction and deep mining. As the workers inhale, dust gets into their airways and can cause health problems. Poor visibility brings added exposure to risk. A reduction in the amount of dust generated also lengthens the service life of the machines. Therefore efficient dust control is particularly important in this industry.

  • Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

    All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.

  • Noise monitoring for the construction industry

    Whether you are in the city, suburb or at a weekend getaway location, noise is an important factor in determining your quality of life or the success of your business.  Many areas have local noise legislation that defines the noise limits that can be produced and experienced during the day or at night.  This noise may be generated by vehicle traffic, aircraft, industrial sites, construction projects, entertainment events, or many other activities.
