From a consumer perspective, living quality in the building itself is vital, e.g. as perceived sound transmissions between apartments could differ significantly for the inhabitants and thus, affects consumer satisfaction differently. This is important for the contractor when using wood as building material, in combination with developing cost efficient and profitable building solutions. The aim of this study is to investigate if end-users in lightweight and heavyweight buildings are satisfied with the standards in their apartments, especially considering the sound transmission between neighboring apartments and from the outside of the building to their apartment, and if they would accept higher costs for a better sound insulation, i.e. an additional value created.
