AESG work to the highest international standards for building commissioning and follow the procedures and guidelines set out in ASHRAE and the Building Commissioning Association.
AESG Facade Testing
Many of us in the industry know that the majority of a building’s energy use in this harsh climate is attributable to the air conditioning system. What a lot of us are not aware of however is the fact that a large portion, upwards of 30%, of this air conditioning consumption is due to leaky building fabrics. AESG offer a number of specialist services to optimise the performance of a building envelope, including:
- Infrared Thermography
- Air Tightness Testing
- Blower door Testing
- Smoke Testing
- In Situ U-Value testing and analysis
- Site Inspections
- Drawings Reviews
- Specification Development
We do not stop there. By using diagnostic tools such as infrared thermography, smoke simulation, blower door testing and in-situ U-Value analysis using a heat flux sensors, we can quantitatively test completed facades and identify any areas of leakage that require remediation.
AESG were the air tightness specialists for Masdar’s Headquarters and led the air tightness process from design to testing in order to achieve the stringent project requirements. To date, the Masdar HQ is one of the largest buildings in the region to undergo a complete air tightness test.
