I have been dealing with RJ Acoustics for about 4 years, a really good firm who actually carried out what they promise. Always good to take advice from them from the outset, so that when you come to your final results there won’t be any surprises. A dynamic firm which really satisfied the needs of the building industry, very resourceful and informative and good value, friendly and easy to get on with, and who will go the extra mile for you. I have used them on all my sites.
Neville Nash Zibcrest HomesDirector
RJ Acoustics have been very professional and helpful in the air permeability and sound insulation testing for the 179 plots I have just completed. They have been very obliging in advising on the best way to achieve the results we required for this site. With fast issue of certification when required, I would certainly use and recommend RJ acoustics for future work
Pleasure to work with.
Dean Chinsky Taylor WimpeySite Manager
Thanks so much for getting everything over to me so quickly. I just wanted to express my thanks for your attitude and professionalism. We’ve had struggles with other testing companies in the past, but your efficiency and knowledge is really refreshing. We won’t look anywhere else for sound, air and ventilation testing in the future.
Jonathan Ellis Hamilton Court DevelopmentsMD
RJ Acoustics have provided a very good service for our project at Hammersmith in respect to the air permeability and sound insulation testing for the 165 apartments we have almost completed. They have supported and advised us to the best of their knowledge, how we could achieve the results we required for this site. The respective certificates and reports were issued very quickly as required. It has been a pleasure to work with RJ Acoustics and would certainly recommend them for future work.
Costa Pires Technical Manager
We have used RJ Acoustics services on all of our projects for the last few years. Not only have we never had any problems, but we always find that they go over and above what is expected of them. I’d recommend them to anyone building new homes.
Adam Gee Construct ID & Homes IDManaging Director
Thank you so much. Your guy was really nice. I spend my life fighting bureaucracy and misinterpretation, it is always a breath of fresh air to find a company who genuinely wants to help. I will call you guys in a bit earlier next time.
Luke Kirton Design DoctorDesign Director
I have used RJ Acoustics regularly over the past few years and they have gone the extra mile to provide us with an excellent service with both Acoustic and Air consultancy/testing.
On all new build schemes we are now required to exceed Building Control Requirements by achieving results in excess of 5dB to satisfy Code For Sustainable Homes and planning/S106 requirements.
As a result they are involved from the very earliest design stage meetings to the last minute client led changes that require their input. The level of flexibility, availability and accountability they offer is exceptional and I could not recommend them strongly enough.
Rob Graham Cube ConstructionManaging Director
Hello. I telephoned your contact number about an hour ago. The phone was answered quickly and in a few minutes I received some very helpful advice which I can now act on. It was refreshing to have such a professional response – and it was free!
I’d like you to know that if our current issues do not get resolved we will come back to you to see if you can help. I thought your good customer service should be acknowledged.

Your worker Szabi was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and professional. He gave specific helpful advice on reducing air/heat leaks which enabled us to bring our self build up to building regulations standards for this air test. Following this advice our home is now much better insulated, so our bills will be less. Well worth doing. Thank you.
