PPP Social Housing Bundle 1

iAcoustics were appointed as lead acoustic consultants to SISK for PPP Bundle-1 Social Housing, amounting to 534 units delivered across 6 sites in Dublin, Louth, Kildare and Wicklow. Our involvement stretched from the early design stage right through to handover. Ambient noise surveys were carried out at each of the site locations which enabled the design team to make informed decisions regarding the acoustic performance of the building envelopes. Dwelling situated near, or facing roads typically required higher acoustic ratings for glazing, which also ensured that the project requirements for Internal Ambient Noise Levels could be achieved.

iAcoustics were present throughout the detailed design stage and carried out regular site inspections to ensure that all dwellings were being constructed in accordance with the intended acoustic scheme. Acoustics testing was carried out in accordance with Part-E of the Building Regulations 2014 to demonstrate compliance with the acoustic separation requirements between dwellings.
