A new partnership between the National House-Building Council and the Building Services Research and Information Association has introduced a more efficient, faster onsite air leakage testing service.
NHBC is the warranty and insurance provider and standards setter for UK housebuilding for new and newly converted homes.
The responsive air leakage testing is part of NHBC’s overall Part L compliance package which includes SAP and EPCs.
NHBC operation manager Richard Stockholm said: “The new partnership will result in a more cost-effective and streamlined Part L compliance solution for NHBC registered builders.
“A faster response time will be achieved through this new partnership, increasing capacity and resource, ultimately minimising disruption on site.
“NHBC continues to lead the way in helping homebuilders meet their sustainability and energy requirements and we are confident that the new partnership will help us to reinforce this message further across the industry.”
