Robust Details Limited is a non-profit distributing company (number 4980223) limited by guarantee. It is a UKAS accredited product certification body (number 4171) and operates the robustdetails® certification scheme which helps new homes developers to demonstrate compliance with the sound insulation standards required by Building Regulations without the need for pre-completion testing. The scheme also includes solutions for homes built to the Code for Sustainable Homes.
Since its establishment in 2004 it has registered 750,000 new homes and through its monitoring and testing programme demonstrated over 98% compliance since starting and a 99.4% rate over the last year. It has done this through establishing a pattern book of sixty different party walls and floors in masonry, timber, steel and concrete together with standardising processes and having a comprehensive testing, monitoring and knowledge transfer scheme via its acoustic testing contractors. More recently the company has developed free training animations to complement its free on line handbook.
The company continues to develop new Robust Details with the industry and is also looking at ways to bring the pattern book philosophy to other areas of new dwelling construction to improve quality, reduce risks and improve compliance.
We believe passionately that our approach to product and process is a highly effective way to help the industry improve.
Therefore we have joined The Housing Forum in order to meet with other organisations that are also interested in delivering demonstrably high levels of performance in economically sustainable ways.
