Within the framework of the BUILT2SPEC project, a new airtightness device suitable for construction sites, is being developed for integration with the Built2Spec Self-Inspection Platform. The output will be available directly on the device itself and exportable to a smart phone app developed for this project. The device operates based on a novel low pressure air pulse airtightness technique by the University of Nottingham which allows testing of occupied buildings with no disruption.
