Sound Insulation Testing for new or refurbished dwellings

In compliance with Part E of the Building Regulation in Bristol and nationwide, we actively encourage clients to seek our services at the earliest opportunity.

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.

As part of our service in Bristol 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.

Our consultants at Bristol can guide you through the process to ensure the best possible chance of achieving sound test passes. Call 0117 212 0189 or email bristol@e2consultants.co.uk
