I put the 5/8 drywall between the plywood box and the 2 in mylar coated foam so it is holding up fine because it is not exposed.

Our conversion had thin lead sheets attatched to the back third of the bus floor under the original carpet and when we pulled the carpet for tile we also pulled that lead and I reused it in the gen bay.

TR,you buy lead lined dry wall at commercial suppliers you won't find it at HD or Lowes if a hospital is being built in you area most of the time you can find enough scraps around there to build a quite box it's good stuff your hospitals use a lot of it

good luck

I used Silvercote, the same stuff they use on racing cars to keep heat away from the driver's feet. Heat reflectiver, and some sound proofing. Works good for me.
