What is a residential noise survey?
The aim of a noise survey is to gain a baseline measurement of the noise environment within the vicinity of your proposed development. Once the noise environment has been defined, the potential noise impact on residential dwellings can be assessed. The level of noise impact is analysed according to British Standards and World Health Organisation guidelines to ensure the future occupants will not be adversely affected by noise.
These standards provide guidance on acceptable levels of noise impact on developments, as well as noise thresholds that should be achieved for bedrooms, living rooms and external areas. We will provide a technical report analysing your proposed development, ensuring you will meet the necessary acoustic requirements. Residential noise survey reports include advice on the layout and orientation of the proposed dwellings, acoustic fencing/shielding and a detailed sound insulation scheme for the dwellings (including facade, roof, glazing and ventilation specifications).
