Environment

We care about protecting the environment and human beings. We shape the environment of man by protecting it from all kinds of pollutants, by creating sustainable buildings with optimised building physics to live and work in and by cleaning up where asbestos is causing problems.

Our strengths

Our team includes civil engineers, mechanical engineers, geophysicists, electrical engineering technicians and biologists and thus has a wide range of experience at ist disposal. We supervise our projects from our offices in Vienna and Salzburg.

Our success is based on closely linking measurement techniques with our work as experts – combining theory and practice. As a consequence we offer one of the largest selections of measuring equipment in Austria: devices for measuring vibrations, noise monitoring stations, air pollution measuring equipment (NOx, PM10, PM2.5, O3) incl. meteorology, devices for measuring high-frequency and low-frequency electrical and magnetic fields, measuring equipment for architectural acoustics, devices for analysing temperature, moisture and indoor climate. Since early 2011 we have advanced our expertise in measuring techniques by becoming an approved test centre.

In addition to mere prognoses and evaluations, we also design detailed protective measures including implementation planning for acoustic hoods, supports for Buildings or railway superstructures.

In most cases cooperation with our clients lasts for many years, based on a solution-oriented approach, high degrees of flexibility and adherence to schedules.

VibroScan®

In 2007 iC acquired the trademark rights for the registered trademark VibroScan® from the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG). With the VibroScan® method rail vibrations are simulated thus allowing to forecast vibration immissions of planned transport infrastructure. The method is based on a vibrator originally used for mineral oil exploration. This heavy vehicle (14 tons) is a self-propelled, all-terrain machine. A mass of 1,200 kg is dynamically excited by the hydraulic system of the machine within a frequency range of 5 Hz to 120 Hz. iC has further developed the VibroScan® method for examinations in the field of structural Dynamics.
