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

"Build Energy were involved from the outset of this new build project. They helped to spec the design in order that the building met the current stringent building regulations requirements for thermal efficiency and water consumption. They performed a pressure test and produced SAP Calculations and Water calculations together with EPC certificates.......their service was prompt, efficient and cost effective......I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others."
