Sound Testing Part E is sometimes referred to as Domestic Part E Compliance, Domestic Sound & Acoustic Insulation Testing, Domestic Sound Testing, Domestic Acoustic Testing, Domestic Sound Insulation Testing.

E2 Consultants deliver Sound Insulation Testing for new or refurbished dwellings in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulation in Wakefield and nationwide.

As part of our service in Wakefield we can also offer advice on the additional requirements of Approved Document Part E including the control of reverberation in common areas and the performance of internal walls and floors.

We actively encourage clients to seek our services at the earliest opportunity as it is possible that the noise mitigation measures required in some instances, could dictate significant changes to external and internal layouts. Therefore our early involvement could remove the need for costly revisions.

Our consultants at Wakefield can guide you through the process to ensure the best possible chance of achieving sound test passes. Call 01924 578 029 or email wakefield@e2consultants.co.uk
