There are many reasons why acoustics should be considered as one of the key elements for any refurbishment or new build. The type of acoustic solutions or acoustic treatments required, depends on a whole host of factors including the most obvious like the use of the space. Good acoustic design, well thought out, with the use of the space considered correctly – helps produce the best acoustic environment.

Often domestic sound proofing specifications are generic and are repeated in acoustician’s reports and recommendations for new builds and refurbishments. Using proven manufacturers materials and installation methods most new build specifications deal with the stopping of the transfer of sound through walls, floors and ceilings. These sound proofing elements are crucial to ensure that the dwellings achieve part E regulations in the UK.

It is important to have all of the relevant information before approaching any acoustic design solution. The following pieces of acoustic assessment information are critical to achieving acoustic comfort: -

 

1. Use of the space in order to determine recommended RT time (reverberation time)

2. If applicable, building regulations and requirements eg. (part E building regulations), BB93 (School acoustics)

3. Existing / proposed surface finishes – walls, ceilings and floors

4. Clients own thoughts on design and finishes

5. Acousticians / consultants report and test results – if available

 

With as much of this information as possible the next phase is to carry out an assessment to determine the location of any sound proofing or sound absorbing treatment and the available wall, ceiling and floor space this can be implemented.
