Abstract: Continuous vibration monitoring is carried out and the stability of the Diamond floor slab has been assessed with regard to how it has responded to various external stimuli. Data has been collected on weather conditions and comparisons made at extremes with floor vibration. The impact of a high level walkway bridge on the hall floor has also been assessed and there was a unique opportunity for an operational facility to measure the vibration response during a complete power blackout. The impact of local construction work is also presented.
