Where: 141 Wilson Avenue, Toronto, ON

October Dinner Meeting 2019
Acoustic Changes to the Ontario Building Code


The next version of the OBC will be introducing significant changes to the acoustics requirements for construction, under Section 5.9 & 9.11. The current 2012 code, simply put, requires walls to meet a Sound Transmission Class (STC) 50. The proposed changes introduce the concept of Apparent STC (ASTC).

This presentation will focus on the upcoming changes to the OBC pertaining to acoustics with an introduction to the concepts of Transmission Loss, STC, and ASTC, and connecting these concepts to what the new code brings and their impact on design and construction.
