[Deep Dive 5] Designing for Air Tightness and Testing

Troy Glasner from E3 Eco Group along with Pat Cuthbert of Aqua Coast Engineering will be diving deep into large building air tightness testing. They will be covering the strategies that ensure a successful building envelope design as well as how to develop a successful plan for air tightness testing. They will be using “The Heights”, a Passive House multi-family building being constructed at 3501 East Hastings Street, as a case study to illustrate air barrier strategies and details, and to demonstrate the testing. They will discuss their findings and how other non-passive house projects have faired in whole building air tightness testing. 

Protocols for testing to the Passive House standard as well as the US Army Core of Engineers standard will be reviewed.  Construction details will be discussed to demonstrate how such projects can achieve a successful outcome for Passive Houses and for other building systems.
