Building Control will request pre-completion sound insulation testing to be carried out to show that the building complies with Part E of the Building Regulations. Sound Insulation Testing is carried out on party walls and/or floors that have a separating function. Sound tests are completed between habitable rooms, i.e. bedrooms and/or living rooms. This is to ensure that the level of sound reduction across the separating wall or floor is sufficient that habitants of the building are not unduly disturbed by their neighbours through normal day to day activity.
Please use the pages of this website to find out more information on what is sound insulation, how it can be improved and the process and regulations regarding Sound Insulation Testing.If you have been asked to get a sound insulation test for your development and need more information or require a quote please don’t hesitate to contact us.
