Do you need to test your building envelope and facade for air permeability?

We are the only company in Australia with accredited testers in QLD, NSW, VIC and WA that can test your building envelope and facade to determine air permeability rates in accordance with ATTMA TSL1&2 and ISO 9972:2015. Our consultants provide technical direction throughout multiple stages of design and construction including design advisory, leak detection, pre-inspection and in-depth reporting to help you optimise the result on your project.
