FranceFranceCompany Name: Audis

Project description

Continuing its development of tourism and thermalism, Rochefort has recently seen its former food market refurbished to become a holiday resort with private apartments. This 17th century building built by Le Vau is classified as a Historic Monument. This building, full of history, preserved its layout and its inner courtyard, its walls of course, cut stones, as well as vaulted cellars.



Founded in 1984, Audis is specialised in plasterboard but also carpentry, for example staircase. They are 40 collaborators in the company.

Acoustic insulation

Key Achievements

  • Good relationship/cooperation within the team. Better insulation performances than the recommendations. Site management. To achieve a high standard apartments the contactor had to be very focus on precise finishing

Key Challenges

For the acoustic : prescription of solutions to insure comfort of inhabitants. The collective lodgings recommends a 53 dB between 2 apartments. Here we are beyond the regulatory requirement of acoustic insulation with 66 dB (with a SAA 160). Thermal : efficient insulation of rampant in a traditional frame/structure thanks to a Isoconfort range and in the wall with ISOVER GR range. Site management : from 20 to 30 people on site. Delivery of 30 trucks (70000 m² of plasterboards) in order to respect the cadences imposed by project manager.
