PAY ATTENTION Benito Galiano !! - BB93 in Schools Explained

Building Bulletin 93 is a pretty daunting assignment for anyone involved in the design and specification of school buildings. It sets tough targets for acoustic performance and offers guidance on what construction details should be used to meet the requirements.

The cane-snapping Department for Education and Skills says BB93 represents a "significant tightening of the regulations concerning the acoustic design of schools". And it can't simply be ignored like a supply teacher. BB93 has clout because from July 1 2003 school buildings in England and Wales have had to comply with the acoustic Building Regulation Part E. This means that new school buildings will be subject to detailed design checks and on-site inspections by Building Control. To read this article in full click HERE

Our News

Quieter Webcasting for Oxford University

Sound Service were approached by the E - Research Department of Oxford University and asked if they would install a suitable product to reduce the echo in their hi-tech webcasting suite. After sending a technical adviser to the site it was decided that the rear wall would need to be covered in Wallsorption to absorb as much sound as possible.

"The acoustics are much improved now. The Wallsorption panels have certainly done the trick very well, just like you said they would."  - Adi Himpson, Communications Officer, Oxford e-Research Centre
