Since 2006, Building Regulations in England and Wales have required mandatory air leakage testing of new homes. They were revised further in 2010. Scottish Building Standards 2010 require mandatory testing, as does Part F 2006 in Northern Ireland.
What are the testing requirements?
The test takes place near the end of the build process, when all elements of the building envelope (air barrier) are completed and sealed. The air permeability rating is a measure of the amount of uncontrolled air leakage divided by the envelope area of the dwelling.
Consistently Outstanding Results
To pass an air leakage test, a dwelling must achieve an air permeability result of 10 m3/(h.m2) (a minimum requirement in England and Wales; a recommended ‘back stop’ in Scotland).
Darren Brooke Homes consistently exceeds the pass rate by achieving an average of 2.5 m3/(h.m2).
