Desktop Design Reviews – Architectural Drawing Reviews


  1. Architectural Plans Examination: Consultants will scrutinize architectural drawings, including floor plans, elevations, and sections, to identify areas where air might infiltrate or escape the building envelope. This could include openings such as doors, windows, vents, and other penetrations.
  2. Specification Analysis: Consultants will review the building specifications to ensure that appropriate materials and construction methods are specified to achieve the desired level of air tightness. They will assess whether the specifications align with industry standards and best practices for air sealing.
  3. Building Envelope Analysis: Consultants will evaluate the design of the building envelope, including the selection of materials and construction techniques, to determine their impact on air tightness. This might involve examining details such as insulation placement, vapor barriers, and sealing methods around penetrations.
  4. Energy Efficiency Considerations: In addition to air tightness, consultants may also consider the implications of the design on energy efficiency. They might assess how air leakage could affect the building’s overall energy performance and recommend strategies to improve efficiency through better air sealing.
  5. Recommendations and Feedback: Based on their analysis, consultants will provide recommendations to optimize the building’s air tightness performance. This could include suggestions for design modifications, material substitutions, or construction techniques to enhance air sealing effectiveness.
  6. Compliance with Standards and Regulations: Consultants will ensure that the design meets relevant building codes, standards, and regulations related to air tightness. They will advise on any necessary adjustments to ensure compliance with local requirements.
  7. Documentation: Finally, consultants will document their findings and recommendations in a report for the design team. This report may include detailed analysis, annotated drawings, and specifications for air sealing measures to be implemented during construction.

Pre-test Site Inspections and Diagnostics


  1. Visual Inspection: The inspector visually examines the building’s envelope, including walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, and any other potential air leakage points. They look for any obvious gaps, cracks, or openings that could affect the building’s air tightness.
  2. Verification of Construction Details: The inspector checks that construction details, such as sealing around windows and doors, insulation installation, and the integrity of the building envelope, are consistent with the design plans and specifications.
  3. Identification of Potential Issues: The inspector identifies any factors that could impact the accuracy of the air tightness test, such as temporary sealing of openings, HVAC system operation, weather conditions, or occupancy patterns.
  4. Recommendations for Corrections: If any deficiencies or issues are found during the inspection, the inspector may recommend corrective actions to address them before proceeding with the air tightness test. This could include sealing gaps, adjusting ventilation systems, or making changes to the building envelope.
  5. Coordination with Testing Team: The inspector communicates their findings and recommendations to the testing team to ensure that any necessary preparations are made before the test is conducted. This might involve scheduling follow-up inspections or coordinating with construction crews to address identified issues.
