About this Event

The presentation will be delivered by Zoom over a 40minute period with a Q&A session if time permits. It will focus on sound insulation test requirements and the requirements of TGD-E,2014 with explanations on both airborne and impact noise and an interpretation of the performance metrics used (Dntw, Lntw). Additionally, it will describe ‘a set of tests’ and test requirements for developments built in accordance with the wall types and floor types in TGD-E,2014 and additional requirements for ‘other constructions’. The presentation will discuss reverberation requirements for corridors, stairwells and common areas. It is proposed that the webinar will assist builders, contractors and construction professionals in the interpretation and understanding of the pre-completion test requirements of TGD-E,2014. The presentation promises to be informative and practical to those in attendance.
