If you own or manage an apartment it has a lease agreement that has conditions relating to the changing of the floor construction, then you may require Sound Testing for Compliance with Lease Conditions. We undertake many leaseholder sound tests throughout London and the South East and offer a ‘4 step acoustic package’ to satisfy your lease conditions comprising of the following:
- Sample Sound Testing of the existing construction. This offers an accurate overview of the acoustic performance of the existing floor partition/s prior to the commencement of construction works. It also enables us to offer a targeted acoustic design using the sound insulation performance of the existing construction.
- Acoustic design review – once we have the performance figures from the sample sound testing have been established, we can forward a design that should improve the performance of the existing floor partition – even if you are changing the floor from a carpet to engineered timber floor finish!
- Site Visit – This allows us to check that the installation team is installing the acoustic materials as per manufacturer’s guidelines.
- Final Precompletion Sound Testing in-line with Approved Document E. This provides an accurate overview of the acoustic performance of the upgraded partition/s, the results of which can be handed over to the relevant person for sign off.
In most cases complaints are usually raised from impact noise such as foot fall from hard bottomed shoes etc. this is accentuated when the unit above has changed their floor finish from carpet to wood.
