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 have also carried out 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.

James Alderson, Head of Mulbury City, commented – ‘Great design support and advice from Susan and her team. I highly recommend the use of dBx for all acoustic works.’

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 out for our logo on the hoardings!
