Works that have commenced from 1 July 2015 on New Build Semi-Detached Dwellings & Apartments are permitted to have a sound test carried out, as stated in the new amendments of the Technical Guidance Document Part E Sound 2014.
The above mentioned dwelling types will now have to meet requirements which will reduce both Airborne Sound and Impact Sound through the building fabric from one dwelling/apartment to the next.
The new Regulations also apply to Existing Buildings ie. works involving a material change of use that result in a building (or part thereof) becoming used as one or more dwellings.
The Sound Test also applies to new extensions of a dwelling that may be attached to another building.
