We’re delighted to be working as the acoustic consultants for developers Manchester Life on the Murrays’ Mills residential development in Manchester.

In Manchester’s booming and competitive housing market, it’s vital for new developments to stand out from the crowd. Murrays’ Mills, a collection of new apartments in Ancoats, does exactly that. Set in the world’s oldest steam powered cotton mill built by the Murray brothers in 1797, the Grade II and II* listed buildings have been renovated into prestigious, design-led apartments.

As a UKAS accredited laboratory (number 9473) for sound insulation testing, we have been tasked with delivering the pre-completion sound insulation testing. This is mandatory for new residential properties to ensure they comply with building control requirements. The tests are particularly important in measuring and controlling noise between walls or separating floors between individual apartments.

Just a stone’s throw from our office in Ancoats, it’s been fantastic watching the site develop!
