The development of robust details for sound insulation in new build attached dwellings.

  This paper outlines the background, process and system approach towards the development of robust details (RD) for sound insulation for new build dwellings in England and Wales. Part 1 outlines the initial Robust Standard Details project and its framework, Part 2 describes the structure and operation of the RD scheme for Building Regulation E1 and Part 3 provides feedback on the first operating year of the scheme. In addition, comparisons are
made between previous performance levels and constructions
used for Part E (1992) relative to the RD approach using recent data feedback from random site inspections and testing.

The results of these early findings suggest that the RD
methodology for sound insulation using a coordinated, panindustry approach, in conjunction with criteria direction from government, can lead to an accelerated uptake in improved construction practice and allow government policy performance objectives to be met sooner.
