25 Milton Park
Refurbishment of an office building at Milton Park, Oxfordshire
This project entailed the refurbishment of a large office building at Milton Park (a science and technology business park in Oxfordshire).
The project scope was to provide acoustic assessments during the design and construction stages, which included:
- Identifying suitable targets for important internal acoustic parameters (such as sound insulation performance, indoor noise levels and reverberation times) and providing advice on how the targets could be met;
- Assessing noise from building services and developing measures to minimise the potential noise impact on nearby noise-sensitive receptors;
- Demonstrating compliance with the requirements of BREEAM in relation to acoustic performance and reduction of noise pollution; and
- Conducting the necessary post-construction noise measurements to confirm that the design aims have been accomplished.
The completed refurbishment forms part of the master plan for the improvement of the entire business park.
