Earth Day: Building Compliance Testing’s Commitment to Sustainability

As we celebrate Earth Day today, it’s essential to recognize the critical role that businesses play in environmental stewardship. At Building Compliance Testing Limited, we are committed to promoting sustainability, reducing our carbon footprint, and ensuring compliance with environmental regulations. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of our initiatives and practices that align with the spirit of Earth Day.

1. Understanding and Monitoring Noise Levels

In the realm of building compliance testing, understanding and monitoring noise levels are paramount. Whether it’s ensuring adherence to regulatory standards or maintaining a conducive environment for occupants, we take noise seriously. Our team works diligently to decipher typical noises and dB levels, ensuring that buildings meet the necessary requirements1. By doing so, we contribute to a healthier and more harmonious living and working environment.

2. Air Permeability Testing Services

Air permeability testing is crucial for energy efficiency and occupant comfort. At Building Compliance Testing, we provide fast and cost-effective ATTMA Accredited Blower Door Testing across London and Home Counties, following BS EN ISO 9972:2015 and CIBSE TM23 guidelines1. Our commitment to achieving air tightness in new build homes ensures that structures perform optimally while minimizing energy waste.

Of course we offer so much more…

3. Planting Trees for a Greener Future

As part of our Earth Day activities, our team gathers tree saplings, shovels, soil, and water to plant trees. We believe that planting trees is not only a team-building exercise but also a way to improve the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, release oxygen, and enhance biodiversity. By planting trees together, we contribute to a greener and more sustainable future2.

4. DIY Greenhouse Project

Building a greenhouse is an exciting project that allows us to grow our own plants, vegetables, and herbs regardless of the weather. By reducing reliance on commercially grown produce, we minimize our carbon footprint. Our DIY greenhouse project promotes self-sufficiency and connects us with nature. Plus, it’s a fun team-building activity that fosters collaboration and creativity2.

5. Crafting Bird Feeders

Crafting bird feeders is both educational and enjoyable. Participants engage with nature while supporting local bird populations. To create a simple bird feeder, follow these steps:

  1. Tie a string around a pine cone.
  2. Cover the cone in peanut butter.
  3. Roll the cone in birdseed. Hang the feeder outside near trees or windows, and watch as birds visit your feeders. It’s a small gesture that contributes to the ecosystem and brings joy to your surroundings2.

6. Advocacy for Sustainable Travel

Our founder George Booth is an advocate for the national charity Sustrans with the aim to increase walking, cycling and use of public transport.

7. Human Health and Wellbeing

Our founder is also a keen Park Runner and regularly volunteers promoting the regular Saturday morning free, community event where you can walk, jog, run. Learn more about Parkrun by clicking here.


At Building Compliance Testing Limited, Earth Day is more than a symbolic event—it’s a call to action. We remain committed to sustainable practices, energy efficiency, and environmental well-being. Let’s continue working together to protect our planet for future generations.

Happy Earth Day! 🌎🌿
