What we did

This £65m residential-led mixed-use development project is part of the London Borough of Brent's £400 million regeneration of South Kilburn. This particular development:

  • Comprises of 3-blocks of 144 residential units - of which 28 are affordable apartments - and a 5,200 sq ft retail unit;
  • Sits adjacent to the Queen's Park railway station and the West Coast Mainline;
  • Is surroundedby busy local roads.

Independent noise and vibration design advice, measurement and testing services were all required during the design and construciton stages of this 2-year project.

Acoustic features of this project

Our involvement in this development included:

  • Finalising the design for construction;
  • Measuring noise intrusion from the mainline railway and road traffic;
  • Conducting a successful programme of pre-completion sound insulation testing to comply with residential and retail building regulations;
  • Undertaking a similarly successful 100% air tightness testing programme, involving all 144 residential units and the commercial retail unit, to meet the requirements of Approved Document L1A and L2A 2013.
