3ARK is committed to improving the comfort and energy efficiency of Australia’s buildings.
We do this by:
- Advising on how to design and build airtight buildings – so that air infiltration is controlled rather than unplanned air-leakage which affects comfort, air-quality, and requires greater consumption of energy to maintain desired air temperature due to loss of conditioned air.
- Performing a verification test of the building envelope performance. i.e. a quantifiable figure to measure against best practice.
- When the air-leakage is greater than planned, we can identify air-leakage locations so that remedial action can be taken
- Assessment of existing homes using the Victorian Residential Efficiency Scorecard which will enable you to obtain a star rating for your home which is an assessment of your home’s building shell and a representation of the running cost of the fixed appliances in your home. It will guide you to make home improvements efficiently and cost effectively.
Although the Airtightness industry is very much in its infancy in Australia, 3ARK have worked with a variety of stakeholders including constructors, various industry groups, engineering firms and design teams, at various stages of the building life cycle, to air pressure test a diverse cross section of buildings in the commercial/private and government sectors.
We can also assist via:
- Engagement as SME’s to advise teams on managing Airtight builds
- Advice on Sealing methodology and correct use of specified sealing products
- Provide budgetary pricing and estimates
- Input to design scope by conducting baseline air- leakage testing and identification for Refurbishment/Retrofit projects
- Collaboration on proposals
- Demonstration of Airtightness testing to clients and project teams
- Feedback on the practical impact of design to the building envelope and risk mitigation
- Objective assessment of building envelope in client/builder dispute
