This session will review the basis of noise
impacts on health, and highlight the potentially conflicting issue of ensuring
good ventilation. The session will
highlight the underpinning relationship linking to National Planning Guidance
and Building Control Regulation.
A brief look at national planning policy,
(including the planning practice guidance), and consideration of ProPG in terms
of the how the guidance document demonstrably implements the national policies
providing a clear framework for decision making.
This session will review the codes of practice
relevant to noise, and specifically the interactions between
ventilation/thermal comfort and noise.
This session will review the principles of good
design enshrined in the ProPG document, and highlight the key process
requirements and criteria in achieving good acoustic design.
The case study predates the ProPG document, but will
highlight the principles of design, and link to ProPG it will reflect back on
sessions 2 and 4 of the screening assessment methodology which sets the basis
for the design approach. The case study
will illustrate that ProPG approaches can be used generically to achieve good
design and the study will clearly show the missing elements that would
need to be addressed to fully comply with ProPG.
This session will
provide a good example of the use of ProPG where an outline application evolves
to produce a fully integrated process that identifies the design constraints
and provides the acknowledgment for compliance with noise standards,
ventilation and overheating requirements.
The Advanced Noise - Good Acoustics, Sustainable Design and ProPG Assessments Knowledge Check will enable you to review your understanding of the course material from the 6 sessions across Advanced Noise - Good Acoustics, Sustainable Design and ProPG Assessments.
Participants will have three attempts at the Knowledge Check and a score of 75% is required to pass.
