AIVC project: "Testing, reporting and quality schemes for building airtightness"

With the trend towards low-energy buildings, the importance and the interest for building air tightness is increasing. This implies an increasing number of tests, calling for increased attention to the quality of those tests including the way the test results are used to justify for programme or regulatory requirements. In turn, those tests put pressure on builders and craftsmen to reliably attain good airtightness levels. The project will review existing approaches and will analyse their pros and cons.
