Acoustic Testing (also known as noise testing or sound insulation testing) determines the acoustic impacts your project will have on its surrounding environment throughout its development and operation. Stroma Built Environment offers a comprehensive, Acoustic Testing service with advice available from the initial stages through to project completion to ensure compliance against all regulatory standards , including Part E of the Building Regulations.
Stroma Built Environment’s team of acoustic engineers is dispersed nationwide, enabling us to keep lead times to a minimum and offer highly competitive fees. Our experts are highly trained and experienced in sound insulation testing, supporting our clients from the earliest stages of concept design to help you achieve your desired acoustic targets.
We have extensive capabilities to work across all sectors to meet the relevant standards:
Stroma Built Environment can assist with planning applications by providing ongoing advice on noise issues and undertake post-completion environmental noise measurements to confirm compliance with relevant conditions. We also can undertake measurements in the workplace to assess compliance with the Noise at Work Regulations, advising on appropriate remedial measures to achieve compliance.
Stroma Built Environment can bring your designs to life using our Acoustic Modelling and Simulation expertise, with innovative computer-based modelling techniques to predict noise levels and indicate them on an architect’s drawings. We can advise on the acoustic performance of rooms and spaces to optimise occupier comfort and minimise noise impact. We can assist your design teams by creating virtual project scenarios, using the details to calculate the environmental noise breakout, ambient noise level and internal acoustic environment. Our modelling experts can also construct virtual street scenes, predicting how the build would impact on the existing noise environment.
Stroma Built Environment offers an extensive service for your acoustic requirements, with experience in carrying out sound insulation tests on buildings of all conceivable sizes and types. In the event of non-compliance, we can also identify and advise on the appropriate measures for bringing substandard structures up to the level required for compliance.
Engagement at the earliest stages of project design, with close liaison with architects and design teams to ensure compliance criteria are established and improvement strategies are outlined
Preliminary testing is carried out onsite to ensure a development is on target to meet the required specification
Pre-application measurements and site assessments are carried out against NPPF and BS4142 with close liaison with architects, local planning and environmental health officers
Post-completion testing is undertaken to satisfy the requirements of the Building Regulations.
Having engaged Stroma Built Environment to carry our air tightness and acoustic testing services, I found the level of service to be excellent. The engineers were both extremely professional and helpful. I would highly recommend Stroma.
