A further assessment included the review of the sound insulation performance of internal walls and floors within the proposed student accommodation. The relevant performance standards were the Scottish Building Regulations Part 5 requirements for Non-Domestic Buildings and BREEAM Credit Hea 05.
We were able to utilise the great experience of our team, from both a theoretical and laboratory-based point of view on this project to help predict and to select the ideal construction methods and materials that would meet our client’s targets. The input of CSP Acoustics in the design, helped to achieve an outstanding acoustic performance and to achieve BREEAM.
Powis Place student accommodation was nominated for the RIAS Award in 2017.
