Build projects for transport and logistics hubs require careful planning, our experience and attention to detail minimise environmental impact.

Farrat specialise in designing out the disruption caused by ground-borne vibration, which can be transmitted through the structural system. These vibrations are not just a potential annoyance to occupants but a potential risk to the inhabitant’s health. Our specialist solutions target noise pollution, vibration from transport infrastructure and thermal transfer efficiencies particularly from connections to balconies and facades. View our building vibration control, acoustic isolation and structural thermal breaks.

When developing transport infrastructure such as airports, train stations, or bus terminals, there are several key considerations to ensure good acoustic isolation, vibration control, and thermal transfer management. Here are some of the most important ones:

Acoustic isolation: Good acoustic isolation is crucial to reducing noise levels and providing a comfortable environment for travelers. This can be achieved through proper design of walls, floors, and ceilings, as well as the use of sound-absorbing materials such as acoustic panels or insulation. Noise barriers can also be installed around the perimeter of the transport infrastructure to reduce external noise.

Vibration control: Vibration control is important to prevent structural damage, noise, and discomfort caused by vehicular traffic or rail systems. This can be achieved through proper design and installation of foundations, structural systems, and vibration isolation materials such as rubber pads or resilient mounts.

Thermal transfer management: Proper management of thermal transfer is essential to ensure that the transport infrastructure is energy-efficient and comfortable for travelers. This can be achieved through the use of insulation, window and door design, HVAC systems, and building orientation. The building should be designed to maximize exposure to the sun in colder months and minimize exposure in hotter months.

Indoor air quality: Indoor air quality is important to the health and comfort of travelers. Proper ventilation, air filtration, and humidity control can help ensure a healthy and comfortable indoor environment.

Energy efficiency: Energy efficiency is crucial for reducing operating costs and minimizing the infrastructure’s environmental footprint. This can be achieved through the use of efficient lighting and HVAC systems, as well as the incorporation of renewable energy sources.

Installation Services

Farrat Installation Services have supplied clients from a wide range of projects with the guarantee of complete isolation, overseen by our team of project managers and engineers with specialist experience in acoustic and vibration isolation.

If installation is not required from Farrat we will support project managers and contractors with onsite installation training.
