- Airtight testing: Get expert support with Part L compliance. All new builds require air tightness testing. We’ll give you the support you need to pass first time, and carry out the testing in line with Part L regulations.
- Ventilation testing: Part F Building Regulations 2010 details the requirement to verify practical performance of ventilation in new dwellings. This requires validation of airflow measurements for every dwelling constructed under this edition of the Building Regulations as well as ensuring that the system has been configured correctly. At Build Aviator we are here to help all the way from planning to completion.
- Water calculations: All new homes are required to meet water efficiency targets outlined under Part G of building regulations. Water calculations assess all the plumbed services which are present in a building and their individual water usage based on capacity and / or flow rates. These results are then combined to determine whether or not the property as a whole complies with Part G of building regulations or the respective local council’s requirements.
