Context

TVS Group’s RESi dry floating floor system installed at the new Result Fitness gym in Durham city centre has addressed potential noise issues for the gym, local retailers and shoppers.

Challenge

With the decision to site the new gym in the busy Riverwalk shopping and leisure area of Durham, TVS was approached by Red Acoustics to ensure there were no noise issues for local retailers and residents.

Work undertaken

TVS Acoustics carried out a series of on-site tests utilising specialist acoustic flooring options to establish which solution would meet the stringent acoustic requirements of the site. With a mix of shops, bars, cafes, a cinema and student accommodation nearby, preventing any unwanted noise from the new gym was essential.

The best solution was found to be the installation of a specialist TVS RESi dry floating floor system for both the main gym area and beneath the sprint track.

TVS also decoupled the walls to stop any noise transfer to other units within the building. Noise suppression was further assisted by the fitment of acoustic underlays on top of the floating floor system, and TVS sports flooring was added.
