Airtightness Detailing

Postby Mister H » Thu Nov 06, 2008 11:13 am

Is anybody aware of any available guidance books for airtightness detailing (a-la Robust Details)?

We have quite an onerous air leakage value specified on a current project, and whilst we will probably need to employ a specialist in the long tern, we'd like to get a heads-up for costing etc.

there isn't on yet, it was talked about when air testing first came into the Building Regulations, but no-one has done it yet.

What is the project???

The so called best people at this tried to build at the Government Watford Building Research Establishment and they failed.
This type of work is probably best done by you, where you can give it the time to get it right.
Polyurethane foam is probably required to fill all the awkward gaps
