New Construction

Make sure you come up with a plan for soundproofing and choose the right solution early on, in order to avoid running into problems in the later stages of the project.

Where to buy

Considerations for a new build

Sound Transmission

Consider what areas of the home would benefit from soundproofing i.e. bedrooms, washrooms, tv rooms and kitchens.

Environmental Noise

Is your development near a source of environmental noise, like a highway or an airport?

Limit Noise

How will you minimize the noise in units that are close together, or close to common areas?

Performance

What value will this bring to my clients/how will it help my reputation as a builder?

As you’re working with the builder or architect on a new construction project, you can account for the ¾” addition to walls during the planning stage.
