Heat Recovery


Air Tightness Testing

Due to the low heat losses, interior surface stay at the same pleasant temperature year round

Air Tightness Testing is a direct line measurement of the overall quality of construction of a building.

The design strategies of buildings and where specified their controlled ventilation means that ever tighter tests have to be achieved and all of these, including Passive House levels of air tightness can all be achieved with a combination  of experience and the correct approach to quality control.

If you are building to a tight level of air tightness then it makes sense to undertake 2 air leakage tests.  The initial one will be at first fix stage before the building get closed up as leaks found at this stage .


Heat Recovery Ventilation

Economy – Reduces home heating costs

Health – Clean fresh air benefits everybody

Comfort – Closed windows and draught free ventilation

Energy Efficiency – Recovers heat from the air leaving the building

Condensation Control – Continuous extraction from wet rooms

Security – Constantly locked windows mean security

steel design
1.  Versatility & Long Spans
Steel is 100% accurate unlike timber.

2 . Long spans open spaces
Steel allows Architects to design large
wide open living spaces.

3. Cost effectiveness
Steel is cost effective because of speed of construction and less trades are needed.

4 Won’t rot twist or crack
Unlike timber, steel does not rot, twist or crack , is galvanised and has a long life span.

5. Built of site benefits
Pre fabricated indoors – so there is no-time loss to weather.

6. Environmental
75% of steel used in light gauge steel houses is recycled.
7. Weight to strength ratio
It takes a lot less to achieve your building design.

8. BER Rated
High BER rating achieved.

9. Air tightness
Easily achieved with a steel framed

10. U values
Highest U values easily achieved with
Steel Framed systems.
