Public

Public buildings have a wide range of acoustic requirements.  Many buildings such as schools, healthcare facilities and courts have requirements for low internal noise levels and good sound insulation between rooms.  Other buildings such as auditoria and council chambers have specific internal acoustic requirements for speech and music.

Public building noise assessments.There are a number of specific criteria for different types of public buildings, BB93 for schools, HTM-08-01 for healthcare buildings.  BREEAM is often used for public buildings.
