pro clima Intelligent Airtightness Training Program
Next Training Date - November 12th, 2019

Are you confused about Airtightness and vapour control – Take the pressure off by taking part in our Intelligent Airtightness Training Program. Are you aiming to meet or surpass the latest requirements of the building regulations or perhaps you are aiming to meet Passivhaus levels of airtightness?

Improving thermal insulation, reducing air leakage and reducing thermal bridging is invisible, but vital to the thermal performance, structural durability, comfort and health of the living space in our buildings. To attain this we must insist on better building practices and materials from the design stage to the building site and put the fabric first.  

Airtightness is a core element in ensuring thermal insulation performs to its optimum, and to deliver more durable, healthy comfortable buildings. It is with this in mind that Ecological Building Systems have launched our latest course, pro clima Intelligent Airtightness Training. This is timely with the requirement for airtightness testing in new buildings and an increased awareness of the need for improved airtightness in both new and existing.

The course is delivered at our Centre of Knowledge in Athboy, Co Meath. Training is provided by our in-house technical expert Peter Smith and Roman Szypura of Clioma House Ltd. Peter Smith has lent his knowledge to some of the lowest energy airtight buildings in Ireland. Roman is a qualified Passivhaus Tradesman and will impart priceless time and cost saving tips on how to deliver reliable airtightness on site. Since 2000 Ecological Building Systems have been at the forefront pioneering the delivery of Intelligent Solutions for Airtightness solutions in Ireland and the UK.
