Acoustic testing is a requirement for properties such as semi-detached, terraces and apartments, where habitable rooms from separate dwellings meet. The acoustic testing requirement throughout the UK is designed to support and satisfy Part E building regulations.
The legislation is also in place for material change of use projects, involving turning a non-residential building into a house or flats. Building Regulations stipulate that the construction must involve measures that will provide protection against sound and reverberation.
Why is it so important?
A fail in an acoustic test on your build could lead to costly remedial solutions and delay sign-off.
