Building Acoustics

Dynamic Response understands the importance of noise and how it can affect the usage of a building. Noise is a term that defines unwanted sound and can range from noise nuisance for example, noisy neighbours, to unwanted reverberation or echo in a room.

Using state of the art software packages, we are able to provide sound insulation and acoustic design advice or services for a range of projects including:

• Residential Conversions And New Build Projects In Line With The ‘Building Regulations Approved Document E’
• Internal Noise Transference For Industrial And Commercial Developments
• Noise Break-out From Industrial And Commercial Developments Due To The Building Envelope Design
• Educational And School Buildings
• Healthcare And Medical Buildings
• Leisure, Sport Or Entertainment Venues
• Places Of Worship Or Religious Events And More.

Some acoustic parameters that we may also look at individually regarding a building could include:

• Reverberation Time Measurements And Calculations
• Required Window / Glazing Specifications To Achieve Any Requirements
• Required Ventilation Calculations
• Minimum Sound Reduction (SRI) Of Separating Building Elements E.g. Doors, Walls, Ceilings Or Roofs

• Internal Noise Levels Within Habitable Rooms
• BS8233 Or 'World Health Organisation' Criteria For Noise Or More

Educational Developments

Building Bulletin 93 (BB93) is a document that deals with the acoustic design of new schools and school refurbishment schemes. At this point in time, it is considered mandatory for schools and is often used for other educational buildings including colleges and university’s etc.

The document itself sets out acoustic design targets in three main areas including;

• Sound Insulation Criteria
• Reverberation Time Targets And
• Internal Ambient Noise Level Targets

For more information relating to the acoustic design of schools, please click here to visit our relevant web page that provides more information regarding this topic.


In offices/call centres where usually there is more than just one person, it can be hard to understand and communicate with other personnel and customers either directly or by the phone etc. There are now acoustic guideline figures to ensure that people can work satisfactorily and that any internal noise levels are acceptable.

If you have an existing office where you consider there to be a noise problem be it privacy or otherwise, for example, manager's telephone calls which can be heard from outside of his or her own office or speech intelligibility problems, then we would aim to provide you with noise control and/or noise mitigation advice to reduce any resultant noise impact to a suitable level.


The control of noise in healthcare environments such as hospitals or health centres etc, is one aspect which can sometimes be overlooked during the design stage, or during day to day operational activities.

Currently, the ‘Health Technical Memorandum HTM 08-01’ deals with the acoustic design in hospitals and healthcare facilities. Such parameters to consider with healthcare can include the level of sound insulation required between spaces, the background noise levels, reverberation times and plant noise emissions etc.

We aim to provide our advice and services for any building acoustics or architectural acoustic issues. Whatever your requirements relating to building acoustics from sound insulation testing (PCT), building design, noise control, noise mitigation or otherwise, please do not hesitate to contact us.
