Architectural Acoustic Design

Acoustic Design of Buildings

ACCON UK have considerable experience in the acoustic design of buildings and are skilled in the analysis of designs to achieve even the most demanding acoustic specification. Some sectors that often require acoustic design advice include:

  • Residential (for Approved Document E compliance)
  • Schools
  • Commercial Offices
  • Hospitals and Care Homes
  • Hotels

ACCON’s staff have worked on countless projects across all of these sectors to achieve sound insulation specifications and other requirements such as acoustic privacy and internal ambient noise levels.

ACCON will work closely with both architects and contractors to achieve the desired performance utilising our vast material database as well as bespoke and proprietary computer programs such as INSUL.

Complete Acoustic Service

ACCON UK have considerable experience with architectural acoustic design projects and provide the same accurate, efficient and professional service for the smallest conversion projects through to large scale development schemes. We are skilled in the specification of glazing scheme requirements as well as the calculation of sound insulation performance of internal partitions and the external facade. We are also experienced in the assessment and control of noise and vibration from mechanical ventilation and accordingly, ACCON can provide a complete acoustic design service for the entire project.

ACCON also have extensive experience in acoustic commissioning and sound insulation testing to prove compliance with the specified standards. We are registered with the ANC to carry out pre-completion testing on new build or newly converted properties to determine compliance with Approved Document E of the Building Regulations.
