Executive Summary 1.1 The established method for obtaining noise emission data for the update of a database of noise from construction plant is examined. 1.2 The established measurement protocol involves the collection of plant noise measurements using a sound level meter, and the normalisation of the data to 10m. 1.3 The results of analytical and experimental investigations conclude that this measurement protocol is reasonably accurate and a practical method for the characterisation of plant sound power on-site for both stationary and dynamic activities.
