Stroma Tech’s air tightness consultancy provides technical advice throughout all stages of a construction project, including design workshops, reviewing architectural drawings, pre-test site inspections, right through to final testing.
We offer a range of air tightness consultancy services in order to achieve compliance with air permeability targets, planning requirements, Building Regulations, BREEAM and other associated industry benchmarks.
By engaging with Stroma Tech in the initial stages of a development, we can carry out a comprehensive review of the proposed construction details to identify any air leakage risks, and recommend cost-effective design solutions to ensure air tightness.
A comprehensive review or the architectural drawings is carried out by an experienced air tightness consultant, delivering advice towards a project’s design intent and overall air tightness approach. The desktop design review includes an evaluation of the detailed drawings to identify design faults and potential risks which may affect air tightness. Our consultants will advise on the details and materials to highlight economical improvements for meeting targets and achieving compliance.
A Stroma Tech consultant will come to your site and will attend a design workshop alongside your project team. During the on-site design workshop, the team will discuss the project, its air tightness strategy and how it has been incorporated into its design. The key details and air barrier design will be examined to establish any potential weaknesses or risks early to recommend where improvements and cost savings can be made.
Our air tightness consultants will carry out an on-site inspection prior to final testing. They will conduct a review to identify potential risks of an air test failure and determine whether or not the building is on course to pass. During the inspection, the air barrier details are scrutinised throughout the building and recorded in an illustrated report to ensure any concerns are addressed before the final air test.
We are able to offer air tightness training seminars, aimed at designers, construction staff and anyone influential in defining a building’s air tightness. These sessions are used to raise awareness and increase the understanding of issues surrounding air tightness.
