Human perception of vibration could be the basic parameter in designing a new buildings located close to public transport. It is also one of parameter that is considered in diagnosis of building vibration. People perceived vibrations through the floor. The problem of floor vibration appear especially in old historical buildings with wooden floor when source of transport vibration change because of infrastructure development. During years road, tramway or railway infrastructure is more expanded that it was when the old buildings were built. That is why new solutions of protection against noise and vibration are needed. One of that kind solution could be vibro-acoustic floor which can reduce impact sounds and vibrations. A flooring system that insulates both acoustically and vibrantly is a common solution to reduce noise coming from impact sounds or to propagate from lower levels to higher ones and to limit the influence of vibration on people receiving vibration in buildings passively. The flooring system should therefore be capable to damp vibrations up to 100 Hz and have sound insulation of min. 25 dB. The composition of vibration insulation materials and their material parameters will be selected to optimize the acoustic and vibration protection. At the same time, the acoustic and vibration-insulating flooring system should have all the functional features that are common to the floor: ease of installation and adequate rigidity. In paper three types of vibro-acoustic floors will be considered: with full vibro-insulation, with insulation strips and with point insulation. Advantages and disadvantages of these three considered solutions will be presented. The paper is pilot study to in-situ measurement which will be held under the project of EU commission support.
