Christian Fogstad, General Manager of Sigicom Inc USA, has been appointed board member of Transportation Research Board (TRB).
Christian, who served on ADC40 (A1F04) – Transportation-Related Noise and Vibration, will fill a member slot to the Standing Committee on Transportation-Related Noise and Vibration (AEP80). His term started in April 2021 and ends in April 2024.
I am honored to receive this appointment and hope to contribute to the advancement of the committees’ mission, says Christian.
The AEP80 looks at transportation-related noise and vibration and evaluates alternative strategies and control techniques for reducing noise and vibration levels, as well as evaluating their environmental impact.
– Metropolitan areas are seeking to decongest and improve transportation alternatives for their residents. Infrastructure will be front and center in the U.S. for both the short and midterm, says Christian.
Naturally, monitoring noise, vibration, and sometimes dust is crucial in these projects as they are often close to where people live and work.
Quality and responsibility
Making sure that noise, vibration, and dust are monitored in a correct, code compliant, and user-friendly way is the core of Sigicom’s business. Behind major road construction, tunneling activity, city/district expansion, and so on, lies carefully detailed monitoring work. Proper monitoring plans enable the contracting community to perform their work on schedule and within budget while looking out for the community at large.
Transportation-related noise and vibration is one of Sigicom’s core areas of business if you look at the projects where our products are used, says Christian, and continues:
Our INFRA system monitors projects from the East to the West Coast and from Canada to the US Southern border.
Sigicom congratulates Christian on his new board assignment with the TRB!
