Sound Monitoring

Municon West Coast provides long-term continuous sound monitoring with automated remote reading capabilities for documenting compliance with local noise ordinances. We use remote logging Type 1 Sound Level Meter (SLM) stations. Each station is equipped with a cellular modem to enable remote acquisition of data. An experienced technician ensures that the data is acquired daily and we provide weekly summary data reports at your request.



A FEW NOTABLE PROJECTS:

San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge

Hydroacoustic Noise Monitoring

During the Caltrans test pile program, Municon monitored the waterborne and airborne sound of 8-foot diameter steel shell piles driven to depths of 360 feet. Municon used multiple high frequency hydrophones and sound level meters, all deployed and operated from its fleet of small boats. Once the new bridge was built, Municon provided hydroacoustic monitoring for the staged implosion of the old bridge’s substructure for the general contractor.

Salesforce Tower

San Francisco, California

This office tower is the 7th tallest building in the United States at 1,070 feet. The tower is supported on cast-in-place foundations extending to depths of approximately 265 feet. The project included excavation, shoring, and foundations necessary to support a three-level below-grade parking structure. Municon provided photo and video documentation of the project, as well as sound monitoring since construction operated on a 24-hour basis.
