Air leakage pre-completion testing in England and Wales

A UKAS accredited service for all projects from small housing developments to mixed-use schemes.

Part L of the Building Regulations sets the energy efficiency standards for new homes and requires that a sample of new homes on all developments is tested for air leakage (also known as air tightness, air permeability or air pressure testing).

In partnership with BSRIA we offer a complete post-completion testing service in England and Wales. BSRIA are UKAS accredited, members of ATTMA and we have the experience to help you on any project with:

  • fast response, quick results - testing is arranged around your build schedule and you receive an immediate indication of test performance on site, with a full certificate/report sent electronically shortly afterwards
  • expert remedial advice if your development fails any of the tests, helping you achieve compliance as quickly as possible. We will, whenever possible, undertake re-tests during the same visit to help you get the pass you need
  • a complete compliance solution if you combine your air leakage testing with NHBC building control and our energy rating services. We will ensure swift communication between teams to clear outstanding technical conditions.
