Vibration exists within all buildings due to sources such as mechanical equipment, elevators, people, and vehicles. While the level of vibration generated by these sources may not be discernable to the typical building occupant, when designing a facility which will house equipment that operates within precise measurement tolerances, the vibration can impact that equipment’s ability to operate. Therefore, to properly design for vibration levels within buildings, it is important to know the vibration requirements of the sensitive equipment. The vibration requirements can then be compared with measured or calculated vibration levels within the building to determine if mitigation will be necessary to allow optimum performance of the sensitive equipment.

About Us

““We hired Erco to install the prescribed sound panels. The end result is excellent. My people are very happy with the reduction of ambient sound. We have had a couple of groups use the dining hall before the Covid-19 hit and we definitely noticed an improvement. We look forward to opening Camp in the fall and having the dining hall full of people.”
“Thank you for the work you did that helped lower the ambient sound in the dining hall.”

“I have personally been working with Phoenix for almost a decade, and they have been an excellent consultant to work with. They respond in a timely manner, and the information they provide is comprehensive and clearly presented. The building analysis Phoenix provides is very clear and easy to interpret. They provide color-coded three-dimensional diagrams that describe the noise impact on a structure. These diagrams have proven to be very helpful for the design team, ownership and contractors. Phoenix also provides detailed reports that include acoustical details, partition types, wall assemblies as well as product recommendations that we then incorporate into our contract documents.

ln addition to the formal reports, they are also very responsive to impromptu questions that come up during design and construction. They have a good comprehension of all project phases, and are able to respond to questions accordingly.

ln summary, I would highly recommend using Phoenix as an acoustical consultant, and I am happy to answer any additional questions you may have.”
