The AACI Good Practice Guidance Document on TGD-E,2014
The following document is at present under preparation at AACI and due for release at the latter part of quarter 1, 2020. The guidance is not considered to be a substitute for TGD-E, 2014, but instead a document highlights good practice in an attempt to bring about higher construction standards and bring recognition to residential builders who exceed the minimum performance requirements described in TGD-E, 2014. The document will include practical checklists and set out the benefits of using qualified acoustic consultants when seeking design advice.
A Free Training Webinar on Sound Insulation Testing and requirements set out in the 2014 Building Regulation Technical Guidance Document E, due to come into effect on the 1st of July 2015. It should be noted that sound insulation testing will be mandatory from the 1st of July 2015 on all residential dwellings that share connected walls and floors.
