This paper gives an overview to the design principles and construction methods for building airtightness. Its primary objective is to disseminate basic information on steps to follow at design stage as well as on tightening products and frequent field issues. It stems from the MININFIL project run between 2009 and 2010 under the PREBAT programme with the support of ADEME. In particular, it can be read as an introduction to the over 150 construction details developed within this project.
