Facade and Air Tightness Testing

AESG Air Tightness Testing Service

Many of us in the industry know that the majority of a buildings 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. We feel that improving the air tightness of buildings is one of the lowest hanging fruits in tackling the regions high energy use as it can be achieved without any new technology but simply through proper detailing of drawings, quality control of construction and testing and remediation of completed facades. For this reason, AESG provide focussed services in air tightness consultancy and testing. Our experienced architects and engineers who are trained in building air tightness can work with design and construction teams to ensure that buildings are designed and built to be air tight.

We don’t stop there however, and using diagnostic tools such as infrared thermography, smoke simulation and blower door testing we can quantitatively test completed facades and identify any areas of leakage that require remediation.

AESG were the air tightness specialist 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.
