Noise is tricky. You can’t block it with a simple fence or mask it with air filters. But, on an infill site construction noise is bound to happen.
In Edmonton, construction equipment can be operated:
- Monday – Saturday: 7am - 9pm
- Sunday and holidays: 9am – 7pm
Tell the Builder:
You’re aware of the bylaws around noise, but would appreciate any efforts the builder could make to limit more disruptive noises out of respect for your new neighbours.
Tell the Neighbours:
You understand that waking up to construction noise can be frustrating, but:
- they’re out there early to get the job done as fast as possible and the neighbourhood back to normal
- the builders are working hard to keep noise levels respectful and they'll only work when permitted by the city’s bylaws
