Residential Acoustic Design

The need for new residential development of greenfield and brownfield sites; the variety of accommodation including loft living, apartments, both high and low rise, and more traditional housing, all pose challenges to the design team and their acoustic advisors.

We assess the suitability of sites and support our clients’ applications through the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). We advise on noise mitigation schemes to control transportation noise intrusion.

Later in the project we assist with the acoustic design of the internal structures and partitions to meet the requirements of Approved Document E of the Building Regulations, BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes. Ten of our staff are accredited by the Association of Noise Consultants to undertake sound insulation pre-completion tests to demonstrate compliance of the construction in properties.

Projects include:

  • 100 Higgins Construction sites
  • 30 Willmott Dixon Housing sites
  • Sites for Taylor Wimpey, UK
  • Hexagon, Family, Raglan and St Pancras Housing Associations.
  • Metropolitan, London and Quadrant Housing Trusts
