Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers

If you build a building or tear down an old building, you need to be concerned about the neighborhood more than you think.

If people who live near the construction site are angry with the contractor for some reason,
you might not be able to continue to build or the working time might be restricted.

Contractors always make an effort to meet the nearby residents before they being to build..

The numbers in the photo shows the noise level and vibration level in the construction site.
People walking around the place can confirm the noise level and feel that the contractor seems to do well.
When the number is less than the legal limit, the contractor can say that they are respecting the neighborhood.
However, some people might think the sound is too loud even if the number is low.

Anyway the field superintendent needs to be wary of the noize level and complaints in the neighborhood.

I live in Kawagoe-city Saitama-prefecture Japan. There are many traditional warehouses in Kawagoe. So many Japanese and the people from overseas come to sightseeing. http://www.koedo.or.jp/foreign/english/index.html

  1. That is a wise decision to display the decibel level sign: I like the idea…. It is a smart reminder to the contractor to keep noise in check. Wish we had more of them in big cities… ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The numbers in the photo shows the noise level – never saw this, but it is very good idea – not for architecture, but for some disco, rock or karaoke music stage shows!

  4. I’ve never seen a measurement for decible level at construction sites. What a grand idea! The Japanese are very considerate people.

  5. Like everyone else, I must say that I haven’t seen that over here in the States. Very neat idea to consider here though! I like the random photo. ๐Ÿ™‚
