Residential Developments Testing is essential for project planning. Current regulations enable great acoustic performance for new and existing residents of a given development. The primary goal of these regulations is to reduce the number of complaints received by local councils.
Regulatory compliance for Residential developments includes a typical sound test, done for residential developments to show compliance with Building Regulations Approved Document Part E (ADE) setting strict guidelines that clarify how new or converted dwellings should be built to achieve acoustic standards for compliance and sign off with building control. As a general rule, at least 10% of homes must be tested to meet these requirements.
Residential Developments can be affected by various types of noise – from transport, entertainment establishments and occurrences, as well as commercial or industrial sources.
