This prestigious high-end residential development by an internationally known architect.
This two storey penthouse in Kensington came with unbelievable inter-room noise problems.
A detailed survey of the property identified all of the sound transmission paths between the bedrooms. None met minimum requirements of Building Regulations.
Remedies included removing ceilings and dry linings, blocking up service ducts and building entire sacrificial walls between floor and slab. All doors were upgraded with drop, jamb and header seals.
The outcome was insulation 10dB in excess of the minimum requirements of Approved Document E, and a client that could finally get some sleep!
