NOVA Acoustics



Refurbishment and Fit Out of Bridgewater Place, Leeds to achieve BREEAM credits for acoustic performance.

Project Title: Acoustic Consultancy and Design for BREEAM HEA 05 and POL 05. 

Project Value: £2m+

Project Brief: Richard Boothroyd and Associates, reached out to us to collaborate on a project in our home town, Leeds. They required our expert acoustic design services for the iconic Bridgewater Place in Leeds to support the refurbishment of the site to achieve BREEAM credits for acoustic performance.

We conducted an existing building fabric assessment to assess which areas required upgrading to achieve compliance with HEA05 and POL05. The design stage assessment included advice on internal ambient noise levels, sound insulation of walls and floors, reverberation control and plant noise emissions. Once the refurbishment is complete we will be returning to undertake pre-completion testing to assess compliance with the BREEAM requirements.
