Our Acoustic Services
APT Sound Testing offers a full turnkey solution for all your acoustic requirements to ensure compliance with Building Regulations Part E and achieve building control sign off for the acoustic elements of the project. This ensures your company receives professional advice every step of the way, with an on-going continual consideration of cost.
Our acoustic services consist of the following elements:
Sample Sound Insulation Testing
We visit site to 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.
Acoustic Design Service
We can help develop the acoustic design of the project from the initial design scheme stage through to the precompletion sound testing. In particular we review the acoustic details to take into account the mass, isolation and absorption elements of the construction.
Site Survey Visits
We offer site survey 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.
Sound Test Failures
If your building fails the sound testing, we can use our experience in building construction and acoustics to firstly diagnose the reasons for the sound test failure and thereafter recommend a cost-effective solution to allow you to achieve building regulation compliance.
