Control of Noise from Outside the Building
Guidance on sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings
BS8233 (2014) – “Guidance on sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings” deals with the control of noise from outside the building, noise from plant and services within it and room acoustics and suggests appropriate criteria and limits for different situations.
BS8233 is the British Standard regularly referred to by Local Authority planning departments to ensure that residents of proposed new build or refurbished developments have adequate noise insulation and are suitably protected from noise outside of their building in order to achieve, for example, reasonable sleeping/resting conditions.
