Four Seasons Hotel

The Challenge

The extensively refurbished Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane required an acoustic underlay solution to effectively control impact sound with the marbled tiled floors of its guest bathrooms. Due to the prestigious nature of the hotel, superior impact sound attenuation needed to be achieved to exceed Part E requirements.

Furthermore, having undergone a vast refurbishment programme the Four Seasons Hotel London now accommodates eight floors of guest rooms, so as well as attenuation of impact sound between floors it was necessary for the acoustic treatment to be easy to handle and install.

The Result

Achieving high levels of impact sound attenuation with a tiled floor finish, Regupol® 4515 Multi exceeds the minimum requirement of 62dB or less specified by Part E regulations.

Russell Coleman, senior project manager, Beck Interiors, commented: “As one of the finest examples of a world class hotel we needed complete peace of mind that the acoustic flooring solution we applied in the guest bathrooms provided more than effective impact sound isolation, especially with the marble floor finish. The technical support that we received from CMS Acoustics in order to specify Regupol® 4515 Multi was excellent, with a member of the technical team taking the time to visit the site.”
