Estimating ground vibration distance just got easier
When construction work is occurring, the impacts can be felt beyond the worksite. Travelers' online construction vibration tool, ZoneCheck®, is designed to help identify potential equipment-generated ground vibration risks. With it, Travelers construction customers can complete preconstruction project surveys in real time, either on the job site or from their office. Understanding the potential risk of property damage is an important aspect of preconstruction surveys.
ZoneCheck centralizes industry-recognized ground vibration data for construction equipment by soil types. With just a few inputs, ZoneCheck calculates how far ground vibrations can extend to surrounding structures or people.
With ZoneCheck, contractors can:
- Establish or refine your strategy for preconstruction surveys
- Estimate the potential for ground vibration to impact nearby structures or be perceived by occupants.
- Develop measures to help mitigate against damages caused by vibration-generating work.
- Create useful, sharable preconstruction documentation.
