The development and production of a guide for noise control from laminated and wooden flooring.

  This document, produced by the Building Performance Centre at Napier University, was commissioned by Defra and the Devolved Administrations of the Scottish Executive, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Department of the Environment in Northern Ireland to examine the noise implications of installing or revealing hard timber floor surfaces within flatted residential dwellings. It makes an assessment of the size and severity of the problem across the UK, reviews current management practices, and suggests amelioration and best practise advice to alleviate and forestall excessive residential impact noise. Relevant findings are presented in the form of guidance documents for the public, flooring trades and stakeholding professionals
