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 Sound Testing a former Old School Building in Bideford, Devon that had been converted to five dwellings. The Old School House in Bideford, is a listed building and a sympathetic re-development of the building has created five new dwellings. Soundguard Acosutics provided initial sound insulation advice and wall construction design to achieve the required sound insulation performance between the new residential spaces and ensuring that the certification could be provided for Building Control. Whilst concessions can be made for soem Historic buildings the performance was fully achieved and a sound insulation performance that exceeded the minimum requirment was achieved in all areas. 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.
