This design tool is provided for both architects and contractors in order to promote better decisionmaking at key stages of a project.
The fundamental construction type chosen for a project has a huge impact on the acoustic performance and the ease with which the acoustic performance can be increased.
This residential design tool has been created to to provide our clients with key pieces of acoustic design information to aid the decision making process when reviewing various construction options. By making better choices at an early design stage, or at tender stage, significant re-design can be avoided which not only saves money but also reduces.
The desired on-site performance target can be selected, ranging from Approved Document E’s minimum of requirement of 45 dB DnTw, through to 3dB, 5dB and 8dB in excess of the minimum requirement.
Once a construction type is selected, this tool allows you to switch seamlessly between the various on-site performance targets and even provides a simple graphical animation of the changes to the construction detail as you move through the options.
