What we did

This project was a new Arts & 6th Form block for this independent, fee paying school. The new build block was an extension to the existing school, on the site of a demolished sports hall. It included a multi-purpose assembly hall, design technology workshops and art teaching rooms.

Our remit involved:

  • Conducting initial site surveys for the ambient noise levels;
  • Reviewing and advising on the architectural designs;
  • Providing ongoing help and advice with the design development during the construction phase;
  • Construction noise monitoring, site inspections and final pre-completion testing to ensure the project complied with BB93 school acoustic standards.

Acoustic features of this project

  • The busy A-road nearby meant that we had to measure noise intrusion to the classrooms in a naturally ventilated building.
  • We also advised on reverberation control for the classrooms and assembly hall, and on the design for sound insulation between classrooms for the walls and floors.
