Acoustic Consultancy ensures acoustic and sound insulation compliance requirements are considered from the outset of a project. Stroma Built Environment offers acoustic expertise from the initial stages of a development, with close liaison with design teams and architects, to minimise the risk of non-compliance.
Stroma Built Environment undertakes a variety of acoustic consultancy services, capable of assisting projects from design stage through to completion. We can help you predict the acoustic impact your development will have on the surrounding environment and assist in meeting compliance requirements for acoustic performance; including Part E, proposed robust details, EcoHomes, Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH), BREEAM, BB93 and more.
We are able to support:
By appointing Stroma Built Environment at an early stage in your development, you can ensure your project achieves its desired acoustic targets. Our highly trained and experienced team of acoustic specialists have worked on projects of varying sizes and types to reduce risks of non-compliance at the initial stages of concept design. No matter what your requirements, we can support you through to project completion with our comprehensive acoustic consultancy and testing service.
An initial strategy review with the architects and design teams to ensure that compliance criteria are established and any risks are identified at the earliest opportunity
An in-depth appraisal of architectural drawings to ensure compliance requirements are met and advice on potential improvements
A comfort test is carried out to ensure developments are on track to meet required targets
A pre-test is undertaken to advise on any remedial works needed to meet targets
An assessment to satisfy planning applications and to advise and evaluate existing noise levels in and around development sites; noise impacting upon the development; and noise impact of the development on the surrounding area
Determine any potential impacts of vibration on a development. Acoustic Consultants can provide advice on how, if any, the sources of vibration may affect occupants or the buildings
Assist with planning applications to ensure compliance with conditions. It may also be necessary to carry out these surveys to discharge a planning condition following planning approval being granted
For final compliance, a post completion assessment ensures noise measurements are at the required level and compliance has been met
Through innovative, computer-based technology, Stroma Built Environment utilise Acoustic Modelling and Virtual Project Scenarios to undertake calculations and predictions. We can advise on the acoustic performance of your developments to minimise noise impact and ensure high levels of occupier comfort. We use your proposed project details to calculate the environmental noise breakout, ambient noise level and internal acoustic environment and can construct virtual street scenes to predict the effect your development will have on the surrounding noise environment.
The service was very good and the relevant certification was received promptly which is a big help to our site team.
Once again, thanks to everyone at Stroma Built Environment (formerly HRS Services) and especially your Senior Acoustic Consultant who definitely went beyond the call of duty.
