Sound Insulation Investigations
All metropolitan cities have one common element: Adjacency between dwellings
This is accompanied by the advantage of creating your own personal soundscape within your space.
The main disadvantage is when
your music becomes someone else's noise.
The common denominator in the above situation is poor sound insulation performance
between residences, which can cause noise nuisance, general discomfort and
loss in quality of life.
Our team of acoustic consultants offers highly specialised advice in terms
of upgrade solutions for
separating walls or floors. The first step would be a site inspection
which could be combined with a
sound insulation investigation. The procedure would be the same as the one followed during sound insulation
testing. The objective is to obtain a first impression of the current sound insulation performance of the
separating wall or floor.
Following the site visit, we would review any available construction details in parallel to the survey
findings in order to make all necessary recommendations for the
upgrade of sound insulation and acoustic
detailing. The acoustic review would consider the requirements of the Building Regulations and any other
specific Client performance requirements.
A bespoke sound insulation upgrade solution would be proposed, based on
budgetary and performance requirements,
while attention would be paid to proprietary acoustic materials and suppliers.
The final result would give a measurable difference in sound insulation,
while fully satisfying subjectively both sides of the party wall or floor.
