Schools, colleges and universities require careful acoustic design in order to achieve the required level of performance.  Building Bulletin 93 “Acoustic Design in Schools” (BB93) sets the acoustic standards for schools and includes detailed guidance on:

•Indoor ambient noise levels from external sources and building services defined on a room classification basis

•Airborne sound insulation between spaces

•Impact sound insulation of floors

•Reverberation within teaching and study spaces.

•Sound absorption requirements for corridors, stairwells and entrance halls

•Speech intelligibility requirements in open plan spaces

We are able to assist with the design or commissioning/testing of educational buildings throughout the UK.
