About As Air Tight As It Gets!

Our Staffordshire Passivhaus project achieves 0.58 air test result.

We were delighted to receive the air test certificate for our new house project in Staffordshire that is designed to Passivhaus fabric standards – fantastic news that the building achieved an air tightness of 0.58 which is evidence of good design and detailing, and great workmanship from the construction team at Contrak.

This is Thinking Buildings second project this year to achieve an air tightness of 0.58 – demonstrating how our knowledge of low energy design and in detailing high-performance fabric first approaches has developed over the last few years.
