Abstract/Description

This paper outlines the background, process and system approach towards the development of robust details (RD) for sound insulation for new build dwellings in England and Wales. Part 1 outlines the initial Robust Standard Details project and its framework, Part 2 describes the structure and operation of the RD scheme for Building Regulation E1 and Part 3 provides feedback on the first operating year of the scheme. In addition, comparisons are
made between previous performance levels and constructions
used for Part E (1992) relative to the RD approach using recent data feedback from random site inspections and testing.

The results of these early findings suggest that the RD
methodology for sound insulation using a coordinated, panindustry approach, in conjunction with criteria direction from government, can lead to an accelerated uptake in improved construction practice and allow government policy performance objectives to be met sooner.
