MLM Acoustics have been commissioned by Quadrant Construction Services Ltd to provide acoustic advice and design services for the mixed-use development to be located on Bream Street, Fish Island, London. We were involved in the planning stage, as well as in the detailed stage. Further involvement could be expected in the next phases. Our recommendations helped the client comply with the Local Authority’s noise-related requirements and achieve the CODE and BREEAM requirements they had set up for the development.

The existing noise climate surrounding the proposed site is of a complex and varied nature, due to the proximity of a fish smokehouse and the Olympic Stadium. Source noise measurements were undertaken in the planning stage to assess the site’s suitability for residential purposes, which involved detailed attended measurements day and night, as well as a thorough software-modelling exercise. A previous ES Chapter was used to extrapolate noise measurements from the Olympic Stadium’s operation as a concert venue and incorporated them in our assessment.

Key Features

  • Works included a baseline acoustic survey for the planning report, software modelling and assessment of the site’s suitability for residential purposes.
  • External building fabric assessment and proposal of construction solutions to comply with required internal noise levels and external noise levels in amenity areas.
  • Internal building fabric assessment and proposal of separating walls and floors, and internal partitions within spaces.
  • Recommendations on acoustic absorption in common areas.
  • Recommendations on building services noise and vibration.
