UKBC can offer complete party wall and ceiling design advice. There’s a number of different options that can help you ensure your building is properly sound insulated. UKBC can guide you through these, advising you on how to design your party walls and ceilings to reduce noise as much as possible.
The walls and ceilings must meet a certain standard of acoustic insulation required by Part E (England & Wales), Section # (Scotland) or Part @# (Northern Ireland) of The Building Regulations. UKBC offers consultancy for both party wall design and ceiling design. Therefore, if you’re developing a new or converted property, you need to make sure the sound insulation design is adequate.
Party Wall Design
UKBC can offer a complete consultancy service to help you meet Part E of The Building Regulations. As a result, we can advise you on the right materials, thicknesses and specification of your party wall design to make sure you comply.
UKBC can offer consultancy at design stage or if your party wall design has failed a sound insulation test. Our service also includes testing with fully UKAS accredited engineers and calibrated equipment.
Ceiling Acoustic Design
If you are developing flats or converting a building, it will be important to get the acoustic insulation of the ceiling design right. This will to maintain a high standard of living for future occupants and to comply with regulations.
UKBC can also offer consultancy and testing for ceiling design. Again, we can advise you on the materials, thicknesses and specification of your ceiling structure. Afterwards, we can carry out tests with our fully UKAS accredited engineers and calibrated equipment.
