When should you be monitoring?

Vibration monitoring is essential when it comes to protecting construction workers, nearby residents, and heritage sites from the potential harmful effects of construction vibrations when they are not kept within the local by-law limits. 


In 2008, the City of Toronto introduced the "Construction Vibration By-Law (514-2008)", which requires careful vibration monitoring for structures near construction sites.  At Toronto Vibration Monitoring Ltd., we have experience with a wide range of construction activities and scenarios, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Back filling with heavy equipment

  • Blasting

  • Excavation in hard soil

  • Pile Driving

  • Demolition

  • Deep Dynamic Compaction

  • Shoring/vertical drilling

  • Train Induced Vibration

  • Vibratory Pile Installation


Our vibration monitoring equipment has the ability to perform real-time monitoring and sends us remote notifications for when "cautionary limits" have been exceeded. Vibration monitoring systems have become an integral part of construction projects as they help contractors, owners, and developers mitigate risk. Furthermore, vibration monitoring has also proven to help identify problems with construction equipment and machinery itself (such as worn bearings or damaged parts). By utilizing vibration monitoring, contractors are able to avoid costly damage to their equipment.
