Acoustics case study

HS2 – Euston


Since 2019, we have been providing Skanska Construction UK Ltd. with technical noise and vibration support for their enabling works at Euston, preparing the existing station for HS2.


Skanska had to meet all the HS2 Environmental Minimum Requirements, in terms of noise and vibration, also HS2’s Code of Construction Practice.


This has involved writing and routinely updating the Noise and Vibration Management Plan, also introducing management and monitoring processes to make sure that Best Practicable Means (BPM) are planned and employed to minimise noise and vibration during demolition and construction works.

We have prepared, submitted (and received consent for) in excess of 80 Applications to the Local Authority under Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974.

We also undertake regular noise insulation and temporary re-housing appraisals to satisfy HS2’s associated policy, and measure/manage noise data from multiple noise monitors in and around the station in order to satisfy conditions attached to the Section 61 consents, or other associated stakeholder commitments and assurances.
