Sound transmission and insulation in buildings

Handbook

This non-mandatory Handbook provides guidance to practitioners involved in design, construction, development, certification or approval implementation. It’s also intended for use in the review of solutions that provide acceptable levels of sound insulation for buildings.

Any acoustic design should be conducted in conjunction with the design of all other building requirements. Examples include structural loading, wind loading, fire safety, earthquake design, ventilation requirements and buildability.
