Acoustic services for residential developments

Residential developments require planning permission to show that noise levels in and around buildings can be controlled. A noise impact assessment should be submitted at the planning stage to show that future occupants can be protected from noise and suitable amenity can be created.

Sound Solution Consultants (SSC) has extensive experience helping clients from planning stage, working with a range of projects from single residential conversions to large multi-residential schemes. Noise surveys can be carried out at the development site to assess the impact of incident noise sources including transportation noise, industrial noise and entertainment noise.

Where planning is granted with conditions, SSC can provide the necessary assessments to satisfy those conditions relating to noise.

More information on our services is available on our Consultancy Services page.

Multi-residential buildings must meet Building Regulations requirements for internal sound insulation performance. SSC offer design-stage construction advice to meet Building Regulations Part E or enhanced design criteria, and has extensive experience advising clients on conversion / change of use developments. We hold UKAS accreditation and offer pre-completion compliance testing nationwide.

More information about our sound insulation design services is available on our Building Regulations Part E page.

I spoke to you last Friday, Thank you very much for your advice and spending your valuable time. I am pleased with your quality because you are not a person who crushes the client with making things up for business, you are a person who looks after clients well ethical manner by giving correct and best possible advice even it does not earn financial value for you. I wish you wealthy and health better successful future ahead.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the extra help you have given me in dealing with my rather sensitive issue of noise transmission to my downstairs neighbour. It has been invaluable. In recognition, I have made a £50 donation to the charity: Action on Hearing Loss.

We have been working with Sound Solutions for a few years now, as they offer a professional and consistent service. They are always happy to respond to site-based questions and are quick to reply to emails and phone calls. It is reassuring to our clients that they provide both the specification prior to construction and test on completion.
