A variety of solutions from Hush Acoustics have featured in a brand new residential development in Canterbury, Kent.
Warren Court is a brand new development of nine luxury two bedroom apartments; Hush provided Marlowe Building Contractors with advice and materials to soundproof the apartments, ensuring acoustic performance better than New Build standard.
The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) energy ratings had already been calculated and passed prior to Hush’s involvement in the acoustic design.
The structure comprised of lightweight masonry walls and a timber joist floor structure.
Hush was unable to change the structure due to SAP compliance, so were required to create a comprehensive design to ensure compliance to the Building Regs with
this form of construction detail.
The biggest issue for this development was the continuous lightweight block walls
that may be thermally very efficient, but acoustically are a nightmare.
In order to surpass the new build standard, all blockwork and timber floor joists were isolated on Hush Resilient Seating.
All the ceilings were isolated by using Hush Suspended Ceilings in the main and used Enhanced Clip and Channel System where the floor/ceiling heights were at a premium.
Hush Panel 28 featured throughout as the floating acoustic flooring system.
Pre-completion sound tests were carried out, which achieved results well above the new build standard.
The results were due to both the overall specification but also to Marlowe’s attention to detail. The overall finish is of supreme quality, seeing impressive visuals meet great acoustic performance.
