The scheme includes the redevelopment of the former Walthamstow Stadium into 294 new homes distributed in different buildings/blocks including family houses, maisonettes, flats and duplexes. The development is served by an Energy Centre located within one of the residential blocks. It also includes commercial units such as a leisure facility, café and children’s nursery.

MLM advised on the detailed acoustic design of the external fabric and internal partitions to achieve suitable indoor noise levels within the residential dwellings. MLM also undertook the BREEAM acoustic assessment for the commercial units. The key objectives of the acoustic design were to ensure appropriate indoor noise levels within the dwellings and achieve three credits under the Code for Sustainable Homes scheme.

The acoustic design of the facades became critical due to high levels of road traffic noise on some blocks. Achieving the high acoustic standards between dwellings required by the Code for Sustainable Homes with a cost-effective design was equally challenging, considering the wide range of construction systems used in the different building types. A potentially noisy Energy Centre directly below residential dwelling required high performance acoustic mitigation measures.

A detail noise prediction model was built with state-of-the-art acoustic software. The model was validated with site specific noise measurements and it allowed to accurately predict the environmental noise impact at specific façade locations and to design the mitigation measures accordingly.

Key features

  •  Acoustic solutions and mitigation measures designed to specifically address different external noise ambient and constructions systems.
  • Extensive negotiations with Environment Agency.
  • Major refurbishment of existing listed Tote building.
