BB93 Sound Testing of Schools
Several studies have noted a link between noise and academic standards/achievement,
BB93 tackles this when sued in conjunction with Part E of building regulations.
It is in the best interests of the school to make classroom acoustics
a high priority for the education of the children, as well as for the
health and well being of their staff. A recent addition to Approved Document
E has been the inclusion of a requirement stipulating that acoustics shall
be incorporated into the design of schools.
Building Bulletin 93 Acoustic Design of Schools, A Design Guide (BB93)
provides a regulatory framework for the acoustic design of schools in
support of Approved Document E. Compliance with The Building Regulations
is demonstrated by submitting specific details to the relevant Building
Control Body, the majority of which are contained within a specialist
BB93 report from an acoustics consultant.
It is now common practice that BB93 compliance testing is also contained
within a school’s building contract to confirm that the construction
achieves its design intent. At Air Pressure Testing we offer a complete
design and testing service in support of achieving compliance with BB93.
Whatever the project, Air Pressure Testing can provide a solution to ensure
your project complies with the Building Regulations.
