Building Airtightness Testing Webinar: Germany, the Czech Republic and France

Airtightness testing: status and trends in competent tester schemes in Germany, the Czech Republic and France

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing number of airtightness tests performed in Europe either for specific high performance buildings programmes or for a wide range of buildings in regulatory contexts. This has led to the development of competent tester schemes to contain potential legal and competition issues.

BUILD UP Web Seminar video recordings | Building and ductwork airtightness: Legislative drivers, new concerns and new approaches

The implementation of the EPBD recast puts increasing pressure on the market to achieve better building and ductwork airtightness: for most European climates and countries, good airtightness levels are necessary to achieve nearly zero-energy buildings.
 
You will learn about legislative drivers that have brought to light new concerns and stimulated new initiatives. We will discuss recent trends in European regulations as well as field studies supporting the development of competent testing schemes. 
 
AGENDA

BUILDAIR-Symposium June 7-8, 2013 Call for Papers

The 8th International BUILDAIR-Symposium „Airtight Buildings, Thermography and Ventilation Systems in Practice“ offers a variety of presentations and firsthand accounts of experiences in planning and practicing air tightness measurements, quality controls, thermographies and ventilation systems. Our symposium is addressed to experienced practitioners as well as to beginners in this topic. As usual, we will set high value on practical oriented user knowledge and intensive exchange between the participants.
