UK New Build Advice


Firstly apologies for an extremely dull question but this one has me slightly flummoxed.

I'm building a studio within an existing brick outbuilding so I'm doing a room inside a room for the main recording area but would also like to treat the external wall (9" solid brick) of a staircase / hallway just outside of this isolated room as best I can as a sort of second line of defence.

There's not enough space between this wall and the staircase to fit a stud wall with fibre glass or mineral wool so I was thinking of glueing some rigid insulation (Cellotex or similar) to the back of some 15mm soundboard and putting that on the wall. (Building code insists I thermally insulate it somehow)

If I batten or use adhesive to fix this board to the wall am i going to create a void behind which Is going to cause problems? Would this type of insulation help to dampen any resonate in this void or not? Could I maybe screw the board directly to the wall or would this would make things any better? I have about 80mm space between stairs and wall.

Anyone have any bright ideas?
