PART Q – AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
What is the point of Part Q? – It’s aim is to prevent people breaking into a home through lower-level doors and windows. In the case of flats, it covers any part of a building from which there is access to the flats. It applies to new build only, but that includes dwellings created by a change of use. This seminar will also discuss what it means for doors and windows and which windows are covered.

In shared accommodation, solutions are therefore necessary to allow tiling to be installed without causing noise pollution to the neighbours below. This CPD examines the common methods used and compares them with using an impact-sound reducing tile backer board such as the SoundBoard by Marmox.
