Sample sound testing is the cornerstone of acoustic design when it comes to the conversion of commercial buildings into residential developments. We can undertake sample sound testing to the existing buildings walls and floors to check the sound insulation performance of the existing dividing partitions. Thereafter, once the sound levels have been established and targeted acoustic design can be undertaken to ensure compliance with Building Regulations Part E.
We offer a proactive approach to acoustic design, onsite construction checks and sound testing. This ensures your company receives professional advice every step of the way, with an on-going continual consideration of cost. Our main acoustic services consist of the following.
Sample Sound Insulation Testing
We undertake sample sound testing to identify the sound levels for the existing partitions. Thereafter a more targeted acoustic design can be undertaken to the partitions saving time and money through the construction process.
We have considerable experience in all matters related to architectural acoustic design and detailing. We can help develop the initial acoustic design of the project from the initial design scheme stage, in particular acoustic isolation, and interior acoustics. We also use the latest Norsonic equipment analysers and sound sources for conventional and binaural acoustic measurements.
We offer site visits which allow you (the client) and your contractor to feel confident about the outcome of testing at the end of the build. The site visits let us check that the installation teams are installing the acoustic materials as per manufacturers avoiding crucial onsite mistakes. You can often have a compliant design which still fails due to poor workmanship; the site survey visits negate the risk of sound test failure.
Precompletion Sound Insulation Testing
We undertake the final precompletion testing to ensure compliance with Building Regulations Part E and achieve building control sign off for the acoustic elements of the project.
