Acoustic requirements for care homes

In order to meet compliance against issue Hea 05, assessment against Part E is necessary, even if compliance with Approved Document E is not required by Building Control.

The multi-residential criteria are intended to reflect that the building occupants are comfortable andΒ have an appropriate level of privacy. Although these are exempt from building regulations for care homes, for a development assessed as multi-residential,Β the criteria relevant to multi-residential buildings must be applied.
