Abstract

Outlines the requirements and methods of assessment of sound insulation in dwellings, as ordered by Part E of the Building Regulations 1985. Explores the origins of the performance standard and comments on the performance achieved in practice. Summarizes present proposals to increase the scope of Part E by means of a case study of a remedial exercise to improve poor sound insulation in newly built flats.
