BEYOND NATURAL FREQUENCY
A technical journey to the successful development of urban spaces using collaborative Building Vibration Isolation.
Published January 2022
According to the UN, 68% of the world’s population is projected to live in urban areas by 2050. This will inevitably mean that as a Developer, you will need to design and build places to live, work and entertain around existing city networks, whilst addressing the additional challenges that arise with proximity to trains, tubes, huge traffic networks, and airports.
At Farrat, we are excited to be working with a growing number of innovative partners and clients to ensure these new urban developments are built to maximise the ROI of development land, whilst providing a safe and sustainable place for end-users to enjoy.
In our new technical conference paper, which was recently presented at the Annual Congress of the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration, we define the key factors and choices in the successful design and execution of Building Vibration Isolation projects to ensure you are able to maximise cost and time efficiency throughout your development, and guarantee a successful outcome.
COMPLEX, MULTI-LEVEL STRUCTURES IN URBAN LIVING
ASPIRING FOR EFFICIENCY OVER SIMPLICITY
We have seen an increasing trend over the past decade in isolating buildings using full-area mats made from either polyurethane foam or recycled rubber. But is this the most cost and time-effective methodology for you, or just the most straightforward?
MAXIMISING USE OF SPACE AND ROI WITH BUILDING VIBRATION ISOLATION
It is inevitable that as urban living increases, the number and density of tall buildings will surge. For urban developments to maximise space and ROI, how can you utilise Building Vibration Isolation at every level?
IN CHALLENGING SPACES
EXPANSION IN OVER STATION DEVELOPMENTS (OSD)
CONNECTIVITY AND SUSTAINABILITY WITH PUBLIC TRANSPORT COLLABORATION
At Farrat, we often see Developers like you hit with additional vibration control challenges caused by development land being on top of transport links and stations. How is the ability of a station’s roof structure going to carry concentrated load paths – is it time to accept there is no bog-standard solution?
