Peacehaven - Commercial Sound Testing Part E - 020 3390 0301
The office that covers this area is: London
E2 Consultants delivers Sound Insulation Testing for new or refurbished dwellings in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulation in Peacehaven and nationwide.
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.
As part of our service in Peacehaven 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 Peacehaven can guide you through the process to ensure the best possible chance of achieving sound test passes.
E2 Consultants are specialists in the provision of high quality and practical acoustic consultancy to both the public and private sectors; typically working with residential and commercial developers, architects, planning consultants, industry, local planning authorities and environmental services.
