Are Thinner Walls In Newer HDB Flats Why You Can Hear Your Neighbours?

Noise is the number one reason behind disputes between neighbours in Singapore, according to the Community Mediation Centre. One resident we interviewed says she can hear her neighbours talk, move furniture and even when they drop things.

But she believes it’s not because she has #badneighbours. Instead, she thinks it’s because walls in newer HDB flats like hers are thinner.

To find out if sound-proofing is indeed the problem, Talking Point asks acoustic consultants to compare the noise levels in her 4-year-old Punggol flat and a 35-year-old flat in Toa Payoh.
