New development damage to property?

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for some advice in relation to a major development adjacent to a friends house. The property is well over a hundred years old and a large apartment block is to be built on the site next door. It's in an already very built up urban area and they'll be utilising the whole site right up the gable wall. Work hasn't even begun yet but the vibrations from skips being off loaded and the machinary arriving to carry out the demolition of the existing building on site can be felt already, all this so far is within several metres of the house. So there are major concerns before demolition/excavation/building has even started. No one from the developers end has been in contact to discuss what consideration has been taken to protect the house from any damage.
    (Apologies, I'm not sure if this is best posted in a building or legal thread.)
    Any advice on what to do in the situation would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
