The Irish Department of education provide guidance on school acoustics which sets out guidance on acoustic conditions in schools. To assess either and existing or proposed school, we lean on guidance provided in the Department of Educations Technical Guidance Document TGD-021-5, Acoustic Performance in Schools.
While the Irish Department of Educations specifications had many similarities to guidance provided in Building Bulletin 93 (BB93), which was first issued by UK government departments in 2003. BB93 then went through an update in 2014, however it did not contain design guidance. Design guidance has since been provided in a publication dated Nov 2015 titled ‘Acoustics of Schools: a design guide’, which can be downloaded here.
