Noise Separation – London

Client: Home Owner

This matter involved the conversion of an existing 2-storey building into flats. 

Soon after moving in to the Ground Floor flat, the Home Owner complained in poor acoustic separation offered by the timber-joist floor separating his flat from the flat above.  The Home Owner commenced criminal proceedings against the Developer for breach of the Building Regulations.

WJM&P were engaged as their Expert Architect by the Home Owner to report on the adequacy of the design and construction of the separating floor, and to outline a remedial scheme.  We concluded that the floor lacked mass and the finishes were not sufficiently independent of the structure of the floor.

Our expert report on the technical issues was exchanged with the Developer, and the case was settled by the Magistrates’ Court.
