Our Services

Sound Insulation Testing

Sound insulation testing, also known as ‘acoustic testing’ or ‘pre-completion testing’ measures the total output of sound from adjacent and neighbouring properties. All new build properties and developments in the UK are required by law to undergo sound testing as instructed by Approved Document E of Building Regulations.

Qualifying buildings and developments must have their sound insulation levels measured in order to demonstrate levels of noise between adjacent walls, ceilings and floors.

Air Tightness Testing

Air tightness testing, also known as an air leakage, air infiltration or air permeability testing is a test to indicate the cubic metres of air leakage per hour per square metre of external area of the building – (m3/hr.m2) – as per Part L of Building Regulations.

Air leakage can occur through gaps and cracks in the fabric of the building envelope, allowing heat to escape, thus driving up heating bills and C02 production.

Ventilation Testing and Commissioning

Part F of the Building Regulations (2010) introduced the requirement to test the practical performance of ventilation systems in new dwellings.

Since RJ Acoustics also offers air tightness and sound insulation testing, we are well placed to carry out ventilation testing whilst on site.

Water Efficiency Calculations

According to the Building Regulations update from April 2010, requirement G2 states that any new build or conversion dwellings must have a water efficiency calculation completed on them. It states that ‘Reasonable provision must be made by the installation of fittings and fixed appliances that use water efficiently for the prevention of undue consumption of water.’

The regulations allow for a maximum of 125 litres of potable water per person per day. This comprises internal water use of 120 litres (per person per day),

SAP Calculations & EPCs

SAP Calculations are an energy efficiency calculation, required by the Building Regulations on all new build dwellings, converted dwellings and some extensions. SAP stands for Standard Assessment Procedure. A SAP rating is given on a calculation – this is a figure between 1 and 100+.

Energy Statements

An energy statement is a report to show a specified reduction in carbon dioxide emissions beyond the standard requirements of building regulations. The specified reduction will vary based on the stipulations set out by the Local Planning Authority and will generally be required on any new build property.

Energy Saving & Reducing Carbon Emissions

As well as being able to perform building regulations testing, we can also provide services to home-owners in existing properties.

Energy Saving & Carbon Emissions Reduction 

We can provide air leakage testing for residents looking for a cost-effective way to reduce their carbon emissions and reduce their heating bills. An air leakage test costs a fraction of the price of most energy saving solutions.

Being energy efficient doesn’t mean going without a warm home or making big sacrifices.

Noisy Neighbours

As well as being able to perform building regulations testing, we can also provide services to home-owners in existing properties.

Noisy Neighbours

We can provide sound insulation solutions for ‘noisy neighbour’ complaints.

Sound insulation solutions are provided by our acoustic consultant, who may be able to locate areas of sound transfer and advise on a variety of solutions to dampen unwanted noise, dependent on budget and available space.
