Lessons from a Decade of PH Airtightness
Paul Jennings , ALDAS
The UK's most experienced active airtightness tester discusses what is required to deliver PH airtightness.  Stategies for delivering airtightness and lessons from a several projects where delivering PH airtightness proved problematic.  PH airtightness doesn't happen by accident, it requires a strategy, attention to detail, and above all needs to be managed.

Product discussion & demonstration, an exercise in identifying the Air Barrier Strategy on a project. Tapping a decade of experience of delivering airtightness on UK PH projects - and sometimes failing to achieve the PH target.

Airtightness Testing & Implementation at Scale: Analysis of New Strategies Within a Constrained Project
Marine Sanchez , RDH Building Science Inc.
Achieving PH levels of airtightness on large-scale projects start with a "good" design. However, key elements such as buildability and testability are integral to delivering it on site and have to be considered early on to ensure a successful outcome of the project. Lessons from one of the UK large-scale projects are shared here, highlighting the difficulties met due to some key elements not being considered at the onset of the project, and how partial testing was used during construction to better understand the building's performance when whole building testing wasn't a possibility.
