Successful Implementation of Vibration Control during Museum Construction Projects
Museum expansions and renovations abound, and associated vibrations caused by heavy construction are potentially harmful to artwork and to sensitive elements of museum buildings themselves. Protection of these objects throughout a construction project calls for a reliable method of vibration control. In this CPD, leading experts explain the effects of vibrations on humans, buildings, and artwork. Then, a scientific methodology for vibration control is outlined. Feedback on how the methodology has worked in practice is then provided by a conservator and collections specialist. By the end of the CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- The nature of construction vibrations and their potential effects on the human body, buildings and artwork
- The basics of a three-phase scientific methodology to successfully carry out vibration control during a museum construction project
- A conservator’s and a collection specialist’s perspective on how the vibration control methodology worked at their institutions

This CPD can be delivered to you live and remotely.
