Requirements of noise control and management in construction sites are stipulated by NEA and MOM through legislations. To ensure that construction works do not affect neighbouring residents and businesses, noise levels are to be continuously monitored in construction sites and kept within the permissible levels. Developers also require contractors to prepare and submit to them a Noise Management Plan which usually includes the baseline noise record, indicate the Noise Sensitive Receivers (NSRs) (such as hospitals, schools, etc.) and propose mitigation measures and public relation strategies to handle noise matters. Throughout the construction duration, contractors are required to implement all practicable measures while continuously monitoring the noise levels closely.

Various challenges are present in pile foundation works due to the uncertainties and variability of the ground conditions. Once the piles are installed, they are expected to function throughout their lifetime. During the lifetime of the building, the foundation is rarely inspected for its continued structural integrity and stability. Supervision of piling works for building foundation is therefore essential and critical in ensuring the quality of construction works and safety of building structures. This short course imparts to participants the essential knowledge of good construction practices, supervision of piling works, regulatory requirements and testing of pile foundation works.
