It also provides extensive guidance on the application of HTM 08-01, the recently-introduced guidance on acoustics in health care buildings, taking the reader through the background theory and the practical application of the guidance which is a key driver to the design and specification of systems in a healthcare building.

British Gypsum is a credible source of knowledge across the building sector, a trusted advisor working closely with many within the supply chain delivering the UK’s building projects.
