Bacton Low Rise, Camden
Vibration and structure-borne noise from passing passenger and freight trains can cause both perceivable vibration and audible noise within dwellings that radiates from the structure. Careful design of the foundations and structure enable adequate controls to be put in place that avoid problems once occupied. Sometimes structural isolation is necessary to meet appropriate standards and expectations, which can be a costly risk to a project.

St George the Martyr Church in Newbury, carried out a significant refurbishments of its existing church building, including a provision for improving the acoustics within the main hall space where people were finding it difficult to hear speech.
