The construction landscape in South Suffolk is continually evolving, with new buildings cropping up to meet the ever-growing housing demands. However, amidst these developments, ensuring that Sound Resistance Regulations are met is of paramount importance.

Our expertise spans areas like Ipswich, Felixstowe, Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury, Haverhill, and beyond.

When to Schedule Pre-Completion Sound Insulation Testing

The ideal time for pre-completion sound insulation testing is when all construction works have been completed. All doors and windows should be in place, with minimal carpeting, if any. Booking the test on a quiet day, free from construction noise, is advisable to obtain accurate results.

Addressing Potential Failures

It’s possible for pre-completion acoustic tests to reveal issues, often due to workmanship or minor gaps and cracks. However, Building Compliance Testing offers guidance and re-testing services once the issues are resolved.

Simplifying Sound Insulation Testing Terminology

The world of sound insulation testing can seem complex, but we’re here to simplify it. Terms like DnT,w+Ctr (expressing airborne sound insulation) and LnT,w (expressing noise in the receiver room) are demystified. We also introduce the concept of Robust Details, essential for compliance with Part E requirements.
