Project: Air Pressure Testing, The Kettleworks, Birmingham

Air Pressure Testing The Kettleworks, Birmingham

Completed: 31/10/2018

Technician: Cameron Milne

The Brief

We were instructed by Colmore Tang Construction to complete a number of Domestic Air Pressure tests on these new-build apartments located in Birmingham.

The Kettleworks, is a part of SGUV’s £100mil scheme and Birmingham’s largest ever residential development. Over 290 new homes have been built on this site alone. Located next to the Jewellery Quarter and within a walking distance from New Street Station, this site certainly carries a lot of appeal.

We had to carry out a total of 78  Air pressure tests on this site, of which each apartment had a target score of 5.

After reviewing drawings, on site testing was ready to be completed. All suitable equipment was set up and checked over to ensure the best possible result.

The results ranged between 3.74 and 4.93 (after remedial work and re-testing on some apartments) meaning that they passed this section of the building regulations and they can now get the job officially signed off.

The Outcome

This building passed the Air Pressure Tests and as a result, certificates have been issued.
