Location: Tamworth, Staffordshire

This large scale residential development of 1300+ units near Tamworth required the services of Hodgson & Hodgson to perform an environmental noise and vibration assessment at the site before building commenced. The site was classified into Noise Exposure Categories in accordance with PPG24 (Although superseded by the National Planning Policy Framework - NPPF, published in March 2012, some authorities still refer to PPG 24). Assessment of internal noise levels within the units was performed with reference to BS8233 ‘Sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings – Code of Practice’ Analysis of vibration survey data was performed in order to determine VDV levels affecting the site from a nearby railway line. Reference was made to BS6472 ‘Evaluation of human exposure to vibration in buildings (1 Hz to 80 Hz)’ Noise attenuation measures were considered and recommended to control noise levels across the site.
