DESCRIPTION

BS 8233:2014


This standard BS 8233:2014 Guidance on sound insulation and noise reduction for buildings is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 91.120.20 Acoustics in building. Sound insulation

This British Standard provides guidance for the control of noise in and around buildings. It is applicable to the design of new buildings, or refurbished buildings undergoing a change of use, but does not provide guidance on assessing the effects of changes in the external noise levels to occupants of an existing building.

This British Standard does not cover:

  1. specialist applications, such as auditoria and cinemas (for cinemas, see BS ISO 9568);

  2. vibration control, except where it is evident in the form of radiated sound; or

  3. noise that breaks out from the building that might affect external receptors.

NOTE Annex A describes some of the simpler types of noise calculation. A method of rating noise is described in Annex B. Methods of measurement of sound insulation are described in Annex C. Annex D outlines some special problems requiring expert advice. Annex E describes airborne and impact sound insulation. Annex F sets out the legislative framework applicable to noise producing developments. Annex G provides example calculations for resolving a typical design problem. Examples of design criteria adopted by various hotel groups are included for reference in Annex H.
