Cahill Design Consultants was contracted by QED Sustainable Urban Development to provide Acoustic Design and testing services to their modular residential building projects projects, located in Ealing and Acton, London.

The developments were constructed completely from modular shipping containers but were required to comply with the requirements of approved Document E of the Building regulations and the noise related planning conditions. CDC provided advice to the Client relating to all constructions that would achieve the requirements of Building Regulations. The construction period for both projects was 12 weeks, resulting in a very quick design stage.

The advice was unique to each development depending on the nature of the modular stacking and elements between the units.

CDC undertook sound insulation testing on completion of the projects and the results demonstrated compliance with the requirements of building regulations.
