Each area within a Gym presents their own Acoustic challenges, from cross-fit to yoga classes – when adjacent to each other you need to consider how these may affect the classes and engagement within those classes without dampening the experience.
"To minimise the risk of complaints regarding gym noise, we recommend that new mixed-use developments are designed so that noise from the gym is generally inaudible in adjoining dwellings. This is a much higher level of sound insulation than the minimum requirements in Part E of the Building Regulations. Inaudibility is particularly difficult to quantify as it is dependent on the background noise levels and the Gym may not yet have been built. In these cases iKoustic use nominal design targets such as ...
Design targets for maximum gym noise levels in habitable rooms of adjoining residential properties:
Daytime (0700-2300hrs) - 20 dB LAmax
Night-time (2300-0700hrs) - 10 dB LAmax"
