Noise mitigation against HS2 enabling works at 30 Euston Square

30 Euston Square is a spectacular Grade II* Listed building dating back to 1906. It has an impressive Victorian façade with an original Greek revival style entrance hall and internally is full of ornate architectural details. Upholding the legacy of the health related professionals who have occupied the building since it was constructed; in 2010 it was purchased by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

Selectaglaze has a long standing association with RCGP and has carried out a number of installations to different areas of the building over the years. The affiliation began in 2010, when the new owners decided it was necessary to commence works to reduce noise ingress on the façade overlooking the Euston Road. To make it more attractive for the users of the space, it was decided to treat them with secondary glazing.

On a few of the lower floors there are study rooms where GP members can stay when they are on College business. Secondary glazing has been installed to inhibit noise from passing traffic. These rooms required optimum noise reduction to enable complete concentration for students who were near to gaining their medical qualifications. A range of units were installed, including vertical and horizontal sliding units and side hung casements.

In 2012/2013, Selectaglaze returned to install secondary glazing to other parts of the building, which were either used for RCGP staff or as tenanted office areas. These were predominantly overlooking Euston Square and a few of the study bedrooms towards the back of the building.

With works in the surrounding area due to finish in 2026 – the projected date for the opening of the new terminus, the occupants should feel a positive change; with a agreeable environment where they can sleep better, concentrate and hear themselves think.

Founded in 1966 and a Royal Warrant Holder since 2004, Selectaglaze has gained a reputation as a leading secondary glazing specialist, creating sensitive designs with low visual impact. Secondary glazing units are subject to rigorous third-party testing which has resulted in high level certification covering thermal, acoustic insulation and protection against forced entry.
