Building regulations require a minimum performance for Sound Insulation between adjacent spaces, for the purpose of providing reasonable living conditions for occupants.
Both residential and non-residential buildings, where Sound Insulation performance needs to be demonstrated, require testing. Applicable regulations can be found in Document E 2003 for England and Wales.
We believe in making things easier for our clients by providing a cost effective ‘one stop shop’ for building compliance.
Our in-house team are accredited to all relevant governing bodies and audited regularly for quality assurance.
Our approach is to provide an excellent customer experience through efficiency, reliability, knowledge and professionalism.
Results can usually be given verbally on the day, followed up by a full report within 5-7 working days of the test. Reports are usually emailed and you then forward a copy to your Building Control officer.
If the test fails, the engineer may advise on potential areas of failure. Remedial works can then be carried out by the developer/builder, and a re-test arranged. This will incur an additional cost.
Advice on design to minimise the risk of failure can be given upon request.
