Sound Testing (Registered for PCT under ANC or UKAS)
We’re not going to bore you with all the details of Approved Document E or Building Bulletin 93 or the gobbledegook that they contain. Rest assured, however, that we know it inside out, and know exactly what testing and reporting is required to get sign-off from the regulatory body or BREEAM assessor.
Our testing fees also include for an extra service that other testers might not offer or be capable of undertaking. We LISTEN and, if we have reason to believe that the sound insulation performance might not meet the requirement, we will undertake a preliminary diagnosis. We will then discuss this with you before leaving site (or on the phone soon after) so that you are ready to undertake the necessary remedial measures in the event of failed tests and you will be more aware on your next build. We will have to report test failures to the regulatory body (it’s inherent in our Association of Noise Consultants’ accreditation that we do) and we can’t promise to diagnose all issues without a repeat site visit using more specialist investigative equipment/techniques, but it’s a service that many of our clients value.
We are also able to undertake testing out of hours, so avoiding conflicts with other trades and the subsequent delays. Helpful when your handover date is looming.
