Our holistic approach to acoustics makes sure that the design advice we give not only addresses all the relevant planning and building regulation requirements – such as the Code for Sustainable Homes and BREEAM Domestic and Non-Domestic – but also takes into consideration their impacts on things like overheating, ventilation and construction. Our acousticians have experience of working within local authorities, so they’re well placed to help you understand how best to gain planning consent. Yet they’re also very aware of the real-life impact when acoustic requirements need to be balanced with things like overheating concerns and daylighting and thermal performance specifications.
We can help you at any stage of your project, offering design advice to influence the specification of the building make-up and achieve the required standard as well as helping you with post-completion testing and offering a full report of the findings. If you need more detailed acoustic testing we can also help with bespoke requests, including things like investigating the effect the development will have on the surrounding area, or looking at fabric design in areas where noise pollution has the potential to affect the liveability of your building.
