Noisy construction work before 4am - is it legal?

Stork

We live next to a building site in the West Bay area. (No surprise there!)We don't mind building work during normal working hours... but today the hammering and banging began at 3.45 am! That seems very early to be starting work in an area where families live.
Are there any legal rules concerning when noisy construction work can take place in residential areas? And is there anyone we can complain to? Thanks for your answers

Mostly the working hours are from 6am to 5pm unless they have special permit. Otherwise report to authorities..:)

Check if they have a permit. If not, inform the police
