Covid-19 Lockdown 2 Announcement

Updated: Nov 5, 2020

We are working through Covid-19 Lockdown 2

Jigsaw Acoustics are following government guidelines (Gov.uk, PHE) on Social Distancing and other industry related Covid-19 guidance (CLC, CITB, CIPD) as we enter Lockdown 2. We will still be able to conduct sound insulation testing on construction sites, developments and in houses (flats, apartments and HMOs).


The Building Regulation Part E Testing part of the business is operated at sites away from the office where travel is unavoidable. Therefore, as long as we adhere to government guidelines, we will be able to carry out sound testing and provide you with the necessary Certificate and Report for Building Control.


Appropriate PPE has been adopted throughout the last 8 months to ensure the safety and welfare of our customers and employees and Lockdown 2 is going to be no different.

Construction Leadership Council, Construction Industry Testing Board and SITMA guidance is also being followed along with our own policies updated when necessary.


Jigsaw Acoustics have a Covid-19 specific Risk Assessment that is available on request.


If anyone is self-isolating or shielding during the lockdown, we have flexible to out-of-hours testing available. Strict social distancing measures are in place and protective equipment will be worn at all times.
