The H2 Series noise-reduction barriers have proved such a success that the World Trade Centre project team has requested Oliveira Contracting to continue using them throughout the continued development of the site.
Echo Barrier technical director Peter Wilson: “We are pleased to have launched the use of Echo Barrier in the United States with a project that is so important to New York City, the United States and the world. Construction-related noise pollution has certainly proven to be a detrimental health concern as well as adversely affecting working environments and project management. Echo Barrier is committed to its ongoing efforts to provide the most effective and efficient solutions to address as many of these challenges as possible.”
Barriers have been erected across the site including around the underpass where a significant difference has been noticed by users.
The Echo Barriers provide a sound mitigation system that absorbs noise. They are designed to be safe to handle and feature night reflectors for after dark working. The Echo Barriers have a PVC exterior and are completely weather resistant. They can also reduce the amount of dust and debris escaping on to the street.
