So how do we soundproof a room or office, well basically we don’t!
We do however construct and modify rooms to isolate sound, whether it be airborne or impact vibration. We regularly design offices, meeting rooms, recording studios, production suites, practice rooms, pods and dance environments. All have differing acoustic requirements and differing ways of dealing with sound transfer.
During an acoustic refurbishment project, before we soundproof a room – we spend a lot of time constructing these spaces to a high acoustic standard isolating area to area and minimising sound transfer between adjacent spaces. We effectively build rooms within rooms, isolating each layer by means of decoupling techniques and effective use of air gaps with obsessive detailing of sealing any air transfer gaps between layers and cavities.
This obsessive attention detailing applies to walls, floors and ceilings/roofs and we design solutions that incorporate all 3 elements together as a whole relative to your building to ensure that the joints between each element perform correctly and eliminate sound transfer at junctions.
