Revised Acoustics Standard in Schools is finally here - BB93 2014
Updated: Jul 31, 2018
This sets minimum acoustic standards for the classrooms for new build schools, which is mandatory through the Building Regulations (2010) ; but it also is how to achieve suitable acoustic standards that would satisfy the in use requirements of nursery and existing schools under Reg 7 of the School Premises Regulations (2012) which is a statutory requirements for school authorities.
Peter Rogers was part of the BB93 Review panel whom worked on the revision of the document. For assistance understanding the changes and practical implications contact Peter at https://lnkd.in/de9JVCS.
