The acoustics of buildings can be the defining item for a successful development this includes: Residential sound insulation and acoustics to meet the requirements of the Building Regulations or other standard such the Code for Sustainable Homes. Assessment of the local noise environment on noise levels in response to National Planning Policy as presented by local authorities. Advice typically on layout and building facades to meet appropriate conditions for residents or workers - BS8233 and WHO standards are normally applied.
Building services. Advice and guidance to ensure that the services aspects complement rather than hinder use of the space to meet recognised guidance.
The acoustics of commercial spaces including office privacy and room acoustics to meet recognised guidance or other BREEAM standard.
Acoustics of specialist spaces such as those requiring high levels of privacy or specific acoustic conditions including cinemas, theatres and multi-purpose spaces. The acoustics of hospitals have been shown to affect patient wellbeing and recovery - privacy is also required.
