Two nightclubs currently operate in the basement of an old mill building in the heart of Manchester. The owners haven recently taken possession of the entire building which they propose to convert to a floor of offices and 4 floors of apartments.
The building is very complicated with numerous connecting floors, walls, columns, stairwells, lift shafts, etc. as well as an ingenious proposed smoking area for the lightwell at the centre of the building.
ADC have been appointed to oversee initial testing and advice, detailed design development of noise control within the clubs and in the proposed apartments, sound system design, site inspections and testing on completion to Building Regulations part E and also to confirm adequate control of the nightclub music noise.
