Abstract/Description

This book is an essential tool for housing managers, building control and architects in designing to improve the levels of sound insulation in existing housing.

A key section on conversions provides invaluable advice on how to approach sound insulation and the use of “pre-conversion sound testing” assisting in sustainability and achieving sound insulation target levels.

In addition to the eight key chapters, there are 11 case studies of pre and post works involving sound insulation improvements.

The inclusion of OER (Occupant Equivalent Ratings) show direct comparisons between the level of measured sound insulation and the reaction and feedback from occupants of how they rate their sound insulation.
