The noise associated with commercial construction is called construction noise. It is normally temporary and limited to a certain daily time frame as well as by the construction period (weeks, months). However, it is also usually especially loud and disruptive. The assessment of harmful environmental effects of construction noise is conducted in accordance with the general administrative directive on the protection against building noise immission (AVV Baulärm).
LÄRMKONTOR GmbH maintains an extensive database that contains the emission data of the individual building processes. The data combine bibliographical references and our own measurements.
