I would like to say something about a project that we took
on in October 2015 in Clapham London for Silcott Construction Ltd. The work
schedule was for labour only, to render and float finish some garden walls. We
arrived on site at the arranged time to meet with the Project Manager Terence. After
1 1/2 hours of waiting around he finally showed up, I asked him for the materials
to start the job he showed me bags of sharp sand, when rendering sand is what
should be used. I eventually persuaded him to go and get the right sand (another
30 minutes wasted).
From September 2015, we have started working with
Metropolitan insulation soundproofing specialists. Within this time we have
completed a number of jobs in London, Bristol, Essex and South Wales installing
soundproof walls and ceilings to reduce the encroaching noise from neighbours.
The work consists of building stud timber walls or stud ceilings and inserting
a 100mm Acoustic insulation into the petitions and ceiling joist and then
double board with a 12mm or 15mm Sound Shield
Plasterboard ,leaving a 5mm gap
between new wall and surfaces that will be filled with foam.
