It’s a secondary sound screen for noisy neighbours. Siting infront of extg party wall !
Spec given is 50 quilt c70 1/2 ply 1/2 sound board.
I have not heard neighbors last week when skimming the hall stair and landings but guessing they must get noisy later !!

Sound insulation is a science and far more complicated than many of us can begin imagine. Biggest problem is when the jobs done the customer turns a radio on full blast and expects to hear nothing coming out.
