Delivering Airtight Buildings: A 12 Step Program

Abstract

To effectively and efficiently deliver buildings to high degrees of airtightness, such as the AECB Silver Standard (≤1.5 ACH-1 @ 50 Pa if MVHR fitted, ≤3.0 ACH-1 @ 50 Pa if MEV fitted), the Canadian Super-E standard (<1.5 ACH-1 @ 50 Pa), and particularly the German PassivHaus standard (<0.6 ACH-1 @ 50 Pa for newbuild, <1.0 ACH-1 @ 50 Pa for refurbishment), the UK construction industry needs to adapt and develop, otherwise contractors and others will continue to face significant difficulties, delays and additional costs.
