Part E of the Building Regulations, School Premises Regulations, and the Independent School Standards, apply to the acoustic conditions in new and existing schools. Guidance on good acoustics in educational facilities is also provided in BB93: Acoustic Design of Schools.

Each room or other space in a school building must be designed and constructed in such a way that it has the acoustic conditions and the insulation against disturbance by noise appropriate to its intended use. There are also specific requirements for reverberation time in rooms within speech intelligibility, aiding good communication within education facilities. At Miller Goodall, we have experience of being involved in education projects from the early design stage through to the final acoustic testing phase of the project.

The planning system aims to protect the educational environment from the impact of poor air quality. Miller Goodall has experience of air quality modelling for new and extended schools.
