(A) The provisions of this amendment shall apply to buildings or portions thereof, and to additions to existing buildings, that are constructed after the effective date of this amendment and that are located where the exterior day-night sound level exceeds 65 dB. A building that has been designed and constructed to include special sound isolation in accordance with this amendment shall not be altered. If a building is altered, it shall be proven that such alterations do not diminish the noise-isolating properties of the building.
