Consultation for Developers

Architects, developers, builders: we can give you honest, no-nonsense advice on your renovation project to ensure your clients are delighted with your development.

When a developer or architect approaches us,
they often feel overwhelmed with the amount
of information online, and the different aspects
that need to be considered when renovating.

With so many experts trying to sell them
particular marketed systems and products
claiming to solve the problem, how do they
know who to trust? How do they know the
proposed soundproofing will actually work?

We know there are a number of ways of
exceeding current Building Regulation ‘Part E’
and every project is different.



Whether it’s a commercial building, change of
use, basement conversion, office refurbishment, restaurant, or HMO conversion, we can help your team exceed building regulations, and introduce new soundproofing systems you can use on your other projects.


From modern loft conversions that meet all
building regulations yet transmit environmental
noise, forcing the homeowner to move from the
home they love, to major office renovations that
offer no speech confidentiality between rooms –
we’ve seen it all.

Our only passion is to help you reduce the noise

We will show you what building materials make noise worse, what needs to go where and why, and tell you exactly how to source the acoustic materials in the most cost effective way.

If you prefer, our engineers can do the acoustic airborne and impact noise testing for you on your renovation project.

We take down and fix at least 2 soundproofing attempts every month in and around our area. We receive calls every day from across the country from people whose soundproofing projects have gone wrong. From modern loft conversions that meet all building regulations yet transmit environmental noise, forcing the home owner to move from the home they love, to major office renovations that offer no speech confidentiality between rooms – we’ve seen it all.

Case Study

Mark is a developer in Birmingham and acquired planning permission to convert his commercial office block into 20 apartments. Mark needed to meet Part E building regulations for the separating floors and the walls in the apartment blocks. He needed a UKAS accredited sound test between the floor and walls of each of the apartments.

Overwhelmed by the different opinions and information he found online, Mark was not sure who to trust and what material he needed to pass the sound test. Mark contacted Quietco for consultation advice knowing that we install sound insulation every day. Who better to speak with than the guys that do this kind of work for a living?

During the consultation site visit Mark learnt that for his particular project to meet Part E, he just needed to build the separating party walls from 7.3N concrete blocks and some rockwool – materials he was already familiar with, which his build team could easily install.

Quietco took care of the UKAS accredited testing for Mark and the separating walls and floors passed with flying colours. The sound insulation value of the separating walls measured at 58 dB (DnT’w + Ctr) The results are rated in accordance with BS EN ISO 717-1:1997 for airborne sound insulation testing and BS EN ISO 717-2:1997 for impact sound insulation testing.

“Thank you very much to Jim for the honest advice. Your consultation booking system and the delivery of the materials is amazing... I will definitely be giving you a call before we start the next project, many thanks.”

- Mark T, Birminghham

Quietco has invested heavily into research and  development internally and in partnership with organisations and universities. We’re interested in not just the optimum combination of different materials required to effectively treat the direct noise path, but also in finding non- combusting, environmentally friendly, and sustainable alternatives to further align the Quietco  vision with the UN global goals 12 and 7.

Building a better future

We believe that as a leading sound insulation company it’s our responsibility to align our business processes and decision-making with sustainability most relevant to our business activities. The UN goals for sustainable development provides a framework for partnerships that contribute to worthy challenges and opportunities we face as a generation. We are proud to be supporting goal 7 and goal 12.

“My team and I are going to change British building standards for sound insulation. Hopefully through awareness of the problems of noise and the effects it can have on people’s lives, we are going to make sure every house has a noise rating survey when it’s sold, so future generations can enjoy peace and quiet in their homes.”
