A new type of building site barrier, designed to absorb the noise generated during work on street-based projects, is proving a hit with construction firms.
Building firms have long searched for a solution to the noise issues created when undertaking projects in busy urban environments.
The Echo Barrier could be the perfect solution, with the system designed to absorb up to 30db of noise, meaning less disruption for office workers and other city-based individuals.
It has already won praise too, with the Noise Abatement Society officially recognising the sound-reduction device.
FM Conway is currently using the special site barriers while it completes work on upgrading footpaths around the busy area of Farringdon Station in central London.
The firm is completing the work on behalf of the London Borough of Islington and Tony McPolin, the contracts manager for Camden and Islington at FM Conway, believes the system is a welcome addition to its work.
“We are always keen to invest in new technologies which care for the environment and local community,” he said.
“In this case, it was vital to ensure that our work had minimal disruption on people and businesses in the financial centre of London.”
