BSRIA and NHBC team up for airtightness testing
BSRIA and the National House Building Council are now working together to provide comprehensive compliance and energy-related service for house builders. Under the arrangement, BSRIA will supply all on-site airtightness testing services to NHBC clients.
The new arrangement will deliver an improved and more efficient airtightness service, with tests and full certification undertaken usually within 24 hours of booking and a reduced on-site testing time, minimising on-site disruption. This will enhance the value of the NHBC SAP and EPC assessments, Building Control and warranty service of NHBC. Special arrangements to deliver results directly to the SAP assessor will ensure the best possible service to clients. BSRIA can also supply Part F ventilation testing during the same site visit or Part L2 testing for communal areas and non-residential properties.
Andrew Eastwell CEO of BSRIA said, ‘We are pleased to be forming a closer association with NHBC as we see this arrangement as a perfect fit to both BSRIA and NHBC. Both of us are committed to the implementation of best practice within the construction industry, and we are both committed to offering a stress-free efficient service to our customers.’
