THE PROCESS

  • After reviewing drawings, on site testing was ready to be completed. In accordance with our strict air tightness testing, building sound testing and ventilation testing procedures, all calibrated equipment was setup to ensure the most accurate result possible
  • Our consultants guided the client to ensure compliance was met, with the following recommendations:
  • Low U-Value Glazing and an efficient combi boiler
  • A high specification meant that low floor, wall and roof U-Values were achieved
  • Constructive bridging details were used to ensure accurate thermal bridging figures
