Acoustic Design & Sound Test Package

Acoustic Design & Sound Test Package
To try and help our clients achieve compliance with Approved Document E, we offer the following 4 step acoustic design & sound test package:

  1. Site Survey Visits – This allows us to check for potential problematic construction such as inclusion of lightweight blocks in the existing construction. It also lets us check that the installation teams are installing the acoustic materials as per manufacturer’s guidelines.
  • Sample Sound Insulation Testing – This offers an accurate overview of the acoustic performance of the existing partitions which enables us to offer a targeted acoustic design using the sound insulation performance of the existing construction.
  • Acoustic Design Review – we can undertake a full design review of the party walls and floors on the development.
  • Pre-completion Sound Insulation Testing – To satisfy Approved Document E and achieve building control signoff. 

APT Sound Testing can advise on all types of acoustic design, whether it’s accomplished during initial construction or during a refurbishment/renovation project. We also undertake UKAS accredited sound testing providing a ‘one stop’ solution for all your acoustic testing and design requirements throughout London and the South East.

Acoustic Design & Sound Test Package

Sound insulation testing is usually required on all London development/s between rooms or spaces that share a common area of separating wall and/or floor as stipulated in Building Regulations Part E for the passage of sound. The main aim of sound insulation testing is to ensure that minimum standards of sound resistance have not been compromised by poor workmanship and/or poor design.

The most common buildings that require sound Insulation testing are:

  1. Dwelling-houses, flats or rooms for residential purposes created by conversion of existing buildings or new build rooms for residential purposes.
  • New build dwelling-houses and flats

APT Sound Testing can advise on all types of acoustic design, whether it’s accomplished during initial construction or during a refurbishment/renovation project. We also undertake sound insulation testing, providing a ‘one stop’ solution for all your acoustic testing and design requirements throughout the South East.

You are normally required to undertake sound testing to a 10% sample of the individual type of partition. For instance, if you have a project with 9 flats you would be required to do 1 x 6 packs of tests; each 6 pack contains 2 airborne wall, 2 airborne floor and 2 impact sound tests; however, if any test failures occur, then the number of sound tests may need to increase on the development.

When sound test failures occur we study the design and construction of the failed partitions to try and evaluate the reasons for the failure; thereafter, agreement can be reached on how to rectify problem.  We have carried our hundreds of acoustic design reviews, so we are well placed to help you overcome any potential problems to achieve compliance with Building Regulations Part E.
