Caice’s acoustic consultancy division, Lee Cunningham Partnership, are able to offer clients a wide range of professional services. Their practical approach covers all aspects of building services and architectural acoustics.
Acoustic Consultancy Services
Project types including offices, supermarkets, schools, hospitals, hotels & leisure facilities, residential developments & lab based product performance testing.
Experience and Professionalism
LCP’s experience extends across a broad range of project types including offices, supermarkets, schools, hospitals, hotels & leisure facilities, residential developments & lab based product performance testing. From noise surveys at the planning stage, consultancy at the design and construction stage, through to final commissioning, all areas are covered.
Ductborne – fan noise via the ductwork systems
Crosstalk – noise transfer between adjacent areas
Airflow generated – noise caused by air moving through the ductwork systems
Ceiling void equipment – noise from fan coil units, terminal units, air conditioners, etc
External plant – noise to surrounding areas from chillers, condensers, fans, etc Ductborne – fan noise via the ductwork systems
Plant vibration isolation – to ensure suitable vibration isolation methods are adopted
Lifts – to give outline advice for noise and vibration control
Surveys & Testing
Background noise survey - day or night, Background noise surveys - unmanned, Façade noise & PPG24 surveys, Vibration and many other surveys.
The Total Acoustic Solution
In conjunction with the other divisions within Caice, LCP can provide part of an all encompassing design and manufacture solution. LCP can carry out initial acoustic designs and survey work for the project. They can undertake acoustic testing at any stage, before ultimately completing acoustic commissioning at the end of the project, ready for building hand-over.
Background noise surveys – to establish suitable external noise criteria for planning
Façade noise surveys – to identify noise levels impinging upon the outside of the building
Planning surveys – to establish façade noise levels for residential planning
Continuous noise monitoring – extended recording of internal or external noise levels
Pre-completion testing with UKAS accreditation – to identify if sound insulation between dwellings complies with Building Regulation requirements
Commercial sound insulation testing – to identify performance between adjacent areas
Reverberation testing – to measure room acoustic characteristics
Commissioning testing – to identify if the required internal or external noise levels have been achieved
Plant testing – determine radiated sound power levels to ISO 3744 or 3746
Plant diagnostic testing – assess noise problems and provide remedial advice
