Description

Approved Document E: Resistance to the passage of sound (this is the current edition: it is the 2003 edition, reprinted 2011 with slight revisions to references).

1.    Following the “James Review of Education Capital” in 2011, DfE have been reviewing their library of design guidance for school buildings with the objective of simplification.

2.    The revised Building Bulletin 93, "Acoustic design of schools: performance standards" was published on 18th December 2014.

3.    The new edition is designed to:

(a) Make the Building Regulations easier to apply and remove the minor problems that have been identified during their 10 years of existence;

(b) Revise effective minimum standards for refurbishment work. These standards will also be compliance standards for changes of use, e.g. from an office to a school;

(c) Reduce design time and make building control approval easier, by setting refurbishment standards as a baseline for alternative performance standards and removing the need for building control bodies to make qualitative judgements about open-plan spaces.
