Sound Insulation Testing

Build Energy can provide a comprehensive acoustic consultancy and sound testing service – whatever your requirement.

Many of the schemes we work on require some element of sound testing whether they be residential, commercial or public buildings. 

Sound Insulation Testing


Sound Insulation Testing – New Buildings

Developments will require the testing of separating walls and floors to achieve compliance with Part E of the building regulations. The only exception is where pretested and certified Robust Details have been used.

Sound Insulation Testing checks for both airborne and impact travel through new or existing buildings. This may affect party walls and floors between new and existing buildings, or between spaces within a new development entirely. 

Do you require Sound Insulation Testing? You will if you:

  • Build a new development of 2 or more dwellings / flats
  • Convert a former single dwelling into flats
  • Build a Nursing Home or rooms for residential use, i.e hotel or hostel
  • Have designs which do not adhere to Robust Construction Details
