Mat Desa, Nur Dalila (2016) Enhancing quality of life: the implication of noise from the construction site towards human comfort / Nur Dalila Mat Desa. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Noise is defined as an unwanted sound. In the achievement of national development and improve the standards of living the population, economic activities and the development of projects of the country must be concomitant. However, people often overlook the environmental problems arising from the implementation of economic activities and development projects. Negative effects resulting from the process of development and modernization in a hurry increasingly urgent and this resulted in the impact of environmental pollution. This paper will be presents the result of noise measurement at a selected site construction. To get the first objective, the data interview session and questionnaire was used to achieve that objective. The process of second phase data is using the sound level meter to measure the noise level at construction site at will compared with the guideline. The noise measurement was carried out at the peak hour, which are 7.00 A.M to 9.00 A.M, 12.00 P.M to 2.00 P.M and 4.00 P.M to 6.00 P.M. the uses of sound level meter was obtained to get the equivalent sound level (Leq), L10 and L90. From that it will directly get the level of comfort at the area and the second objective will be achieved. there are eleven (11) critical factor can classified as the best factor to the contribution of noise from construction site. The proposed of the best factor which contribution factor to the noise from
construction site is based on the Mc Caffer (1997) rating scale which is show rating scale 3.50
