Air Tightness Testing Consultancy

Build IR can provide vital air tightness recommendations at every level of the construction process, providing expert insights and practical solutions to improve energy efficiency and maintain indoor comfort.

The Benefits Of Air Tightness Testing:

Air Tightness Testing Consultancy

By investing in our air tightness testing consultancy throughout the design and build you can save time and money by:

Reducing the risk of a failed 1st air test.

Avoiding costly remedial works.

Avoiding missing completion date.

Not having to re-test the building.

Desktop Design Review

We can review your construction drawings early in the build, or ideally BEFORE the build commences. An Air Tightness strategy is essential, as it cannot be easily introduced later in the build.

On-Site Design Review

We can meet with the design team, project team and relevant subcontractors to develop the air tightness strategy.

Site Advice Visit

We will visit site to inspect the ongoing implementation of the airtight line. This may be recommended once, or multiple times throughout the build depending on the complexity of the project.

Air Tightness Testing:

Uncontrolled air leakage through a building’s fabric is a major contributor to heat loss, energy costs and thermal discomfort within any building.

Air tightness testing (also known as Air leakage or Air permeability testing) is a requirement for new Commercial (non-domestic) and Domestic buildings to comply with Building Regulations Part L.

Air permeability values are used in SBEM (non-domestic) and SAP (domestic) calculations, used to generate building EPCs.

Air tightness testing consultancy can be carried out to older, in-use buildings to help quantify and determine the cause of excessive heat loss, energy bills and cold / draughts.
