 Abstract
This study aims to develop a solution to inter-floor noise complaints by exploring cases of noise complaints between floors and by identifying the demands and needs of the residents. For this purpose, a survey was conducted targeting residents who were sorted into groups depending on their experiences with inter-floor noise. This survey was carried out from June 11, 2014 to June 16, 2014. A total of 100 copies of the questionnaire was distributed to the residents, of which 98 were completed and collected. Data were statistically processed in accordance with SPSS WIN 18.0. The results showed that the leading causes of inter-floor noise complaints were residents` differences in schedules and their inconsideration in behavior. Thus, the solution to this issue is three-fold: first, to take social measures in order to improve communication and understanding between residents so they can be mindful of their noise levels; second, to reinforce noise control regulation; and third, to improve noise reduction design within the building architecture.
