Investigation of the sound isolation of concrete slab floors
“The talks studios in the basement of Broadcasting House Extension were mounted on rubber pads as a protection against noise and vibration from the Bakerloo line which passes very close to the building. The isolation achieved, however, was less than the calculated figures and, although a margin of safety was allowed, the noise level in one studio proved to be higher than the maximum acceptable.”

Study of Poured-In-Place Concrete Wall ASSEMBLIES in Coastal British Columbia
Examine several specific aspects of construction practices (including exterior coatings, concrete mix, crack control and joint detailing) that impact the performance characteristics of poured-in-place concrete wall assemblies.

Icynene Spray Foam
“Icynene LD-C-50™ and LD-C-50 v2 are used to provide thermal insulation in buildings and to seal areas such as plumbing and wiring penetrations against air infiltration, in Types I, II, III, IV and Type V construction (IBC) and dwellings under the IRC. The insulations may be used in fire-resistance-rated construction”
