The 2014 Building Regulations, Technical Guidance Document E (on Sound) sets out minimum acoustic standards required on all new residential dwellings. This document is also known as TGD-E and can be viewed here.

Since July 1st, 2015, for all new residential buildings, a minimum sample of sound tests must be carried out on the separating elements between dwellings.

For ICAN Acoustics building and construction clients, we offer pre-completion testing to provide evidence that the sound insulation performance achieved by the separating wall or floor meets the required minimum standards for airborne and impact noise.
