Need to know how to build a sound (passage) resistant wall between structurally sound apartment units.

I would do it like they do it in the motels. Put sound proof sheetrock on each side of the wall, with styrofoam panels between the studs.

Thanks for the reply. Let me ask you this. should we use regular fiber insulation with the foam, or will the foam be all that is needed.
