Schools Assessment

Typically, we may carry out the following for architects and builders responsible for creating or upgrading educational buildings.

  • Long-term and short-term Measurement of existing noise levels. Knowing this allows us to offer design advice on adequate glazing to stop noise break-in to buildings.
  • Predictive computer modelling of the sound insulation offered by the architects proposed separating walls and floors. This tells us if the partitions are up to standard according to BB93.
  • Assessment of the reverberation time and speech intelligibility in proposed rooms to test compliance with BB93 criteria.
  • Recommendations to improve standards to those prescribed by BB93, or better.
  • A free helpline whilst work is underway and, where necessary, a site inspection.
  • Sound testing of the completed school, if required by the local authority
  • Documentation of the assessment in a report which you can send to your local authority and your BREEAM Assessor.
