The paper contains a brief description of forensic investigations of failures and short information on a case history of damage to structures from construction vibrations [1]. The review focuses on the case history which is fully presented in Svinkin and Saxena [2]. The reviewer wishes to bring attention to proper evaluation of vibration effects on structures. Detrimental consequences of construction vibrations are not only topic for academic interests. These effects create meaningful practical problems. Each year, numerous structures, and residential houses among them receive damage from construction operations, and these consequences result in litigations. It is necessary to professionally manage construction vibrations, and sensible vibration limits are important for the control of construction vibrations.
