DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Charity–Prominent real estate authority, Marcus
Hiles argues that peace and quiet are as crucial for high-end
apartments as the powerful interior design or on-site features. For this
reason, all new Western Rim developments are now constructed using
strategic, proven soundproofing methods that ensure residents a quiet
home, minimizing the noise of surrounding neighbors.
Professional soundproof technicians are now “busier than ever as
consumers search for quiet,” according to the New
York Times, as an innate issue of dense, vertical apartment
properties is the constant noise from surrounding units being heard in
others. Music, footsteps, and even chatter all have the tendency to
bleed through floors and walls, creating a disturbance to adjacent
neighbors. Hiles’ strategy involves implementing effective soundproofing
methods as new apartments are being constructed, eliminating any
potential sound issues from the outset. All new Western Rim projects
feature double-thick walls between homes, and 18 inches between floors.
Remaining space between walls and floors is completely filled with
cellulose, an efficient, optimal sound-muffling material.
Hiles has established a reputation for constructing upscale suburban
communities in close proximity to major urban centers throughout Texas.
The solace and enhanced privacy inside each apartment unit is a fitting
complement to these features, providing a true refuge from the outside
world. In addition to soundproofing, the materials and methods used
serve another purpose as well, helping to reduce carbon emissions and
overall energy costs — an important goal of Hiles for each property.
