In response to concerns from neighbors about noise generated by the Glenview Elementary Construction Project, OUSD is committing to adopting additional noise mitigation measures. These measures are based on standard conditions of approval, which would be required by the City of Oakland for a private project of similar size and location. These measures are based upon recommendations from Wilson Ihrig, acoustics, noise, and vibration specialists.
Immediate actions taken by the District and the JV Team (project contractors) include installing a noise barrier on the upper school yard behind neighboring homes on Hampel and Wellington. In addition, the contractors will refrain from activities that exceed the City’s long-term construction noise threshold (such as operating pneumatic tools) before 8:00 am and after 4:00 pm.
