Sound Testing for Building Regulations

Sound Testing for Building Regulations
1

At inacoustic, we can arrange for nationwide UKAS and ANC Accredited Sound Insulation Testing and provide reports for submission to your building control officer. Part E of the Building Regulations for England and Wales, requires sound testing to be carried out in all new-build dwellings and conversions that create two or more adjoining dwellings with either separating walls or floors.

Sound testing is a carried out to ensure your development demonstrates acceptable levels of airborne and impact sound insulation performance outlined in approved document E of the Building Regulations.

Our sound testing fees offer value for money and quality of service. In the event of a failed test we offer design advice and a discounted re-test.

In the relatively rare event of your test failing, one of our experienced acoustic consultants will review the construction and provide advice on cost-effective solutions to achieve the appropriate standard. Remedial works can be expensive, so it is best to get the job right first time.
