A blower door test is a tool to measure the air-tightness of a building. .
One specific element of risk in regards to soil contamination occurs when volatile substances enter the building through the floor or basement and threatens air quality.
To estimate the actual risk we establish the level of control measures required. To do this we objectively measure the air- or vapour-tightness within the designated building.
Construction today is committed to insulation, ventilation and energy efficiency, elements that can also be evaluated by a blower door test. Different air-tightness and building air-flow metrics can be calculated from the data of the different blower door tests. We also apply these techniques to physical building applications.
The first phase consists of working with you in deciding which information is necessary in regards to your needs and how we can offer the best results in a cost effective manner. We’ll then determine which approach would offer the best results in your particular case.
On the basis of a more detailed site investigation, we can refine the chosen approach. We can then implement the selected strategy.
After completing our work, we thoroughly evaluate the results. If necessary we will then perform additional research to either confirm or disprove the results.
