Planning and Noise
Custom Audio Designs provides:
BS 8233:2014 Guidance on sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings
BS 8233 provides guidance for the control of noise in and around buildings. It applies to the design of new buildings, or refurbished buildings undergoing a change of use, but does not provide guidance on assessing the effects of changes in the external noise levels to occupants of an existing building.
BS 8233 draws on the results of research and experience to provide information on the design of buildings that have internal acoustic environments appropriate to their functions. It deals with control of noise from outside the building, noise from plant and services within it, and room acoustics for non-critical situations.
BS4142:2014 Methods for rating and assessing industrial and commercial sound
BS4142 is a British Standard that describes the procedures and methods for measuring and assessing noise to determine if it will cause noise complaints from neighbouring properties. Most local planning departments will ask for a BS4142 noise survey to be carried out when any noise making activity, or equipment, is going to be introduced close to where people live.
