A company that was converting an industrial warehouse into offices needed an acoustic solution to reduce the very loud noise from aircraft taking off from nearby Heathrow airport and flying low, directly over the office. We carried out some tests to assess current levels of aircraft noise inside the industrial warehouse. Then we designed a sound insulation scheme for the building to reduce the level of aircraft noise transmitted inside.
The sound insulation was combined with a suitable type of acoustic ceiling panel to reduce the level of reflected noise inside each office, and to provide suitable acoustic conditions for office activities.
The sound insulation achieved such a large noise reduction that visitors often comment favourably, and express surprise at how quiet it is in the office. Having experienced the very high levels of aircraft noise outside, several have asked
how can this be possible?
