Sound Insulation Testing

We provide a comprehensive acoustic consultancy and sound testing service across the UK.

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

Sound Insulation Testing – New Buildings

In order to comply with Part E of the Building Regulations, developments will require the testing of separating walls and floors. The only exception is where pre-tested 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

"BE are fantastic, local building energy assessors, with competency across many areas. We have found them very useful on small and large projects. With the larger projects they can provide a range of assessments with one point of contact. We submitted a planning application for 224 residential apartments for a site in Luton. BE provided the flood, acoustic, heat loss and SUDS reports. The scheme was consented and reports were excellent. We have found them to been frank and honest with their advice. They are also lovely people to work with… which is very important."
