Student Accommodation, Birmingham

Location: Lower Loveday Street, Birmingham

Client: Bluestone Plc

Hodgson & Hodgson Acoustic Consultancy was commissioned to provide outline and detailed design advice for the two multi-storey new build student blocks. The proposed site was situated next to a large electricity station which meant that low frequency noise had to be assessed. This resulted in specification of high performance double glazed window units together with acoustic trickle ventilators.

Further advice was given for the separating walls and floors so they were Part E compliant together with assessment of the lift shaft. A lighter weight façade solution was agreed for the top recessed floor with different party walls. However the results were the same and Building Control were satisfied with all the commissioning results
