For the purposes of BREEAM credit Hea 05; Bertha Park Secondary School has been designed to Building Bulletin 93 requirements. CSP Acoustics has also been appointed to undertake completion testing at Bertha Park Secondary School, with satisfaction of BREEAM credit Pol 05 to be established during the completion testing regime.
Reverberation time calculations for these spaces have been carried out using proprietary 3D room acoustic modelling software EASE® (Enhanced Acoustic Simulator for Engineers) which takes account of assessment methods set out in BS ISO 3382-2:2008 Acoustics
Measurement of room acoustic parameters.
The use of this software allowed accurate determination of areas and placement of sound absorbent material finishes within large volume spaces, which typically require rigorous assessment, in order to comply with BB93 requirements.
