The acoustic performance of new school buildings falls under the Building Regulations with the requirements set out in Building Bulletin 93 (BB93). This covers all schools from infant & nursery up to sixth forms.
The School Premises Regulations and Independent School Standards also cover the performance of new and existing schools, including refurbishment work, temporary schools and non-teaching areas.
WBM has extensive experience with school projects covering feasibility and concept work, baseline surveys, façade design, sound insulation and internal acoustics.
We furnish clients with high quality BB93 assessments, including BREEAM where necessary, carry-out compliance testing and have delivered solutions to local authorities, architects and contractors for school projects that range from single classroom extensions to large new build schools.
This comprehensive service extends to further and higher education colleges, universities and adult learning centres, which may use BB93 as guidance. These buildings also benefit from our wealth of experience in the sports and leisure sectors.
