Sound Testing is an essential requirement at the completion of any new build or conversion project and this week Soundguard Acoustics Ltd was tasked with  providing sound testing design advice for a former Primary School Building in South Molton, Devon that is undergoing conversion to dwellings. The former school, is a listed building and the developers require a sympathetic re-development of the building. Soundguard Acoustics provided initial sound insulation advice and wall construction design to achieve the required sound insulation performance between the new residential spaces to ensure that Approved Doc E certification would be relevant for Building Control. Whilst concessions can be made for some Historic Buildings where features are to be preserved the performance intension is to achieved and a sound insulation performance that meets the Approved Doc E requirement. Soundguard Acoustics Ltd is based in Bideford, Devon and is approved under the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) registration scheme for carrying out Approved Doc E sound insulation testing for building control so that you can be sure that you are using a local and Approved Doc E sound testing company that is fully accredited, uses suitably qualified and experienced sound testers and is acknowledged by local Building Control Officers.
