Sound Insulation Testing & Acoustic Consultancy
We can offer all types of advice from a quick site visit to provide verbal acoustic advice, to a fully-fledged acoustic design review of all relevant details for a larger development. Not only do we review the separating construction but also the junction details considering potential noise flanking issues.

Following the design stage advice, we can then carry out the sound insulation testing at the pre-completion stage so our clients can achieve building control sign-off for the acoustic element of the development. We provide our acoustic services for all types of projects from small housing developments to the largest residential developments.

What is Part E of Building Regulations?
Approved Document E of the Building Regulations requires that new attached homes are designed and constructed to provide reasonable resistance to the passage of sound via the party walls and floors and that, unless the homes are registered with Robust Details Limited, a sample of 10% of dwellings on every new development will have to be sound tested.

Using our pre-completion testing service gives you:

Quick response, fast results– the sound testing is arranged around your build schedule, and you will receive an immediate indication of test performance on site, with a full certificate/report sent electronically shortly afterwards.

Expert remedial acoustic advice– if your project fails any of the sound tests, we try to help you achieve compliance as quickly as possible. We will, whenever possible, undertake re-tests during the same visit to help you get the pass you need.

Complete compliance signoff solution– if you combine your sound insulation testing with our air leakage and energy assessment services. We will ensure swift communication between teams to clear outstanding technical conditions.
