Project Name: RBS 2013 Bundle Western Building Systems
Location: Portlaoise, Cork & Lutrellstown Co Dublin
Architect: Oppermann Associates
This bundle consisted of nine schools as part of the Rapid Build Schools Program 2013, three schools located in Luttrellstown Dublin, three in Portlaois and the remaining three in Cork. All schools were tested in full compliance with the DoES TGD’s which includes testing to BS EN 13829, CIBSE TM 23, ATTMA TSL 1 and Part L 2008. They had a tight specification of 3 m3/hr/m2 @ 50 Pa which was achieved by carefull planning and design.
We were engaged as specialist airtightness experts to carry out site audits of the ongoing works, review of details, complex junctions, full ITC Level 2 building thermographic survey and the FINAL ISO 17025 INAB Accredited airtightness. The speed of construction, complexity of the building and size of the project resulted in 1 x monthly inspection intervals and regular workshops with the site team which enabled the building fulfil its specification of < 3.00 (m3/hr) /m2 @ 50Pa.
