Advice on Building Acoustics

Sound generated inside a building is reflected and absorbed at room surfaces. Some energy propagates through the structure to other adjoining areas, while some can escape to the environment and is heard by neighbours.

Just as sound can escape a building, so to can it enter it too. Usually this is noise and can be from road traffic, aircraft, industrial sources and even people. Often sound escaping a building finds the same routes as noise entering from outside.

There are also external sources of noise associated with buildings, for example rooftop mechanical plant. These add to the potential noise disturbance from a building. So, of course, does the whole process of its construction.

Enzygo are able to undertake building acoustics studies for a wide range of projects. These can be as part of a planning application, or an Environmental Statement/EIA. Building acoustic surveys may also be required as part of initial feasibility reviews or detailed design stages of a building project.
