Abstract The excessive vibrations of some observation towers in Latvia highlights the lack of the understanding and inadequate design information of the building codes, regarding the slender tower dynamic response to human induced loads. Research demonstrates that in areas with a low seismicity and relatively low wind loads the human induced dynamic loads are determinative to a slender and light-weight observation tower design and mostly due to checking the serviceability criteria.
