Location: West Stockwell, London

Client: Galliford Try

Hodgson & Hodgson has provided acoustic consultancy to Galliford Try on a new mixed use building located in West Stockwell, London which incorporates a community resource centre, crèche and affordable housing. H&H Acoustic Consultancy was commissioned during the design stage of the project. An Environmental Noise Assessment was carried out to measure existing ambient noise levels. One of the main concerns was the noise break-out from the hall, used by a community gospel group affecting the nearby residents.

The company's acoustic consultants worked closely with Galliford Try to ensure that the predicted noise break out level was within the criteria set out in BS4142. H&H were also involved in the specification of absorbent materials in the entrance foyer, corridors and stairwells so that they met the requirements set out in Section 7 of Approved Document E (2003) to the Building Regulations 2000 (ADE 2003). A desktop calculation was carried out and build-ups of the separating walls and floors together with junction details were reviewed. Pre-Completion Testing for the flats on the fourth floor showed the airborne and impact test results were superior to the criteria set out in Approved Document E (2003) for Purpose-Built Dwellings.
