Sound Testing is an essential requirement at the completion of any new build or conversion project and this week Soundguard Acoustics Ltd was tasked with Sound Testing a former bank building in Sturminster Newton, Dorset. Whilst the bank retained many historical features, including the lath and plaster ceilings, skirtings and period windows, the building was classified as a conversion and the acoustic ceiling system installed provided the required sound insulation performance between the new residential flat conversions ensuring that the certification could be provided for Building Control. Soundguard Acoustics Ltd is based in Bideford, Devon and is approved under the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) registration scheme for carrying out Approved Doc E sound insulation testing for building control so that you can be sure that you are using a local and Approved Doc E sound testing company that is fully accredited, uses suitably qualified and experienced sound testers and is acknowledged by local Building Control Officers.
