Avoid Leaky Homes

Have you heard about ‘The leaky homes crisis’ in New Zealand? This was a construction and legal crisis concerning a number of timber framed buildings constructed from 1994 to 2004 that suffered from tightness problems. Air tightness is extremely important to avoid moisture formation within building walls and roofs.

Thomas Consultants overview architectural, structural and building services design by making them interact to minimise air and water leakage due to wrong assemblies.

As the air tightness is likely to be jeopardised during construction works as the level of attention to be paid to details is extremely high. Thomas Consultants offer also construction monitoring services to ensure that air leakage is minimised and does not compromise the planned outcome.

Benefits of Air Tightness

  • comfortable homes
  • cool in summer and warm in winter
  • long life buildings.
