Hello all,
I am trying to convert a Anti Vandal Office into a small studio/practice room the space is 36ft x 12ft We are going to build a stud wall inside the room with a double layer of 15mm plasterboard on the inside wall and fiberglass insulation between the wales,
The floor will be rigid fiberglass with 2 layers of ply-board on top.
My question is, as we can not put down a concrete floor do you think I should mount the walls on a anti vibration pad of some kind, or just attach the to the cabin floor?
Thanks

just attach it. you can run a layer of rubber (like soft neoprene) which provides a solid seal or just a thick bead of caulk under it.

It reads like your floor might be free to vibrate so I would go for a resilient layer under the floor plate of your stud wall. As Glenn said Neoprene or similar. You could glue it to avoid screws coupling floor to wall, if you codes allow.
