J B Riney (recently acquired by Tarmac) were tasked with carrying out pavement and surface works to the area in and around Cannon Street, very close to shop fronts and offices, as well as the historic Fishmongers’ Hall.Challenge
The works were in an area surrounded by offices, and close to routes used by thousands of commuters every day. The noise from the works had to be contained so that the disruption to city workers was minimised.Solution
A previous attempt to control the noise had been unsuccessful because the barrier did not completely break the line of sight, giving no benefit whatsoever. RVT were therefore called in to provide multiple Soundex Q1/1 Contractor Quilts with seamless Velcro connections, which would completely break the line of sight and achieve a noise attenuation of up to 28.2dB.
