dBx Acoustics is working with Mulbury City and Tim Groom Architects on the £30m, 143 apartment Blossom Street development in Ancoats, Manchester.

Our involvement with the scheme began at the planning stage, working carefully with the architects on the detailed design of the facade and glazing to ensure that traffic noise would not impact on residential amenity. We are also working to specify internal constructions to exceed the requirements of Approved Document E and working with Futureserv to ensure that ventilation system noise is controlled both internally and to the environment.

We’ll shortly be starting on an acoustic modelling exercise of the communal residential lounge, rooftop kitchen and cinema room, to ensure that the urban aesthetic of the design still presents a comfortable and usable aural environment for residents.

The project has now started on site and is scheduled for completion in 2019, at which point the dBx team will be on site for pre-completion acoustic testing. Meanwhile, if you’re passing, look our for our logo on the hoardings!
