We provide sound insulation testing on all types of buildings, for compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations in England and Wales and Section 5 of the Scottish Building Standards.


Testing can also gain credits for the Home Quality Mark scheme.


We provide a cost-effective sound insulation testing service which can be conducted with airtightness testing and ventilation testing for minimal site disruption.


We provide:


  • detailed reports of acoustic performance and make practical recommendations for improvements if necessary

  • testing outside normal working hours to minimise site disruption and avoid construction site noise

  • nationwide coverage with regionally based engineers

  • fully accredited engineers to provide certification for Building Regulations Part E compliance, recognised by Building Control

  • rapid response and immediate results on site


Under Part E Building Regulations, a sample of units in new dwelling developments and refurbishments may have to be tested to demonstrate compliance with Part E1 of Approved Document E. This has now been extended to new schools and is also regularly specified by clients of buildings where sound can be an issue such as hotels and nightclubs.


We can advise the correct number of tests required and, where applicable, the required increase in performance.
