The plasterboard was then screwed to the roof and the long parts of the plenum had holes cut round them. They were left long (and sealed off) until all the decorating was done and I then trimmed them back with a Dremel like tool and fitted the vents.
I got some nicer looking ones from BPC that are meant to be acoustical - but I got them for the look
as opposed to any of the others

It was an absolutely horrible job, though. I wore a hooded tyvek suit, with tape around the ankles and taped on gloves, but I still found myself itching for hours afterwards!

My personal view if that acoustic insulation in party walls and floors is important, but when it comes to internal walls then it's not worth going to overboard and minimum compliance to BRegs is the only constraint. We were planning to use a 100mm rockwool in the internal walls and directly under the floor boards between the joists.
I am interested in understanding why you decided to go to 200mm and what the pros of putting the insulation above the plasterboard, rather than under the flooring are.

The Wickes 30mm (Rockwool) Acoustic Insulation Slab works out at £15.50/m² -- Ouch! Some of the glass fibre options are a lot cheaper (just over £2/m² for 50mm and under £4 for 100mm) but you have to handle glass fibre. Any suggestions appreciated.

Yes it's on the top floor.
