Residential projects cover a wide range of accommodation provisions, from houses and flatted developments to care homes, hostels and hotels – all of which have to comply with detailed sound insulation requirements under the Building Standards, including pre-completion testing of accommodation that is attached to other accommodation.
The introduction of pre-completion testing for almost all residential developments has been the catalyst for substantial changes to the detailed design and construction management of residential developments – and CSP Acoustics provides a Test Risk Management service for such developments to help reduce problems at pre-completion testing by working with designers and constructors throughout the design and development stages. CSPA also has extensive experience of providing Noise Impact Assessments for large and small scale projects to help gain planning permissions for developments and refine designs to mitigate any impacts. These assessments have covered various types of transport noise, industrial noise, music and entertainment, shooting, dog barking and the like.
By understanding the architectural and engineering implications of residential projects CSPA is able to work closely with developers and designers to minimise noise impacts, optimise detailed construction designs and maximise Test Risk Management as demonstrated in the Award Winning West Burn Lane residential development in St Andrews.
