Gaia Research has taken over the running of ALDAS (Air Leakage Detailing & Awareness Services)
The need to carry out infiltration testing in non-domestic buildings is applicable for building warrant applications in Scotland since May 2011. ALDAS is well placed not to simply test buildings but to provide the upfront assistance and guidance to architects and contractors on delivering to targets without the cost and inconvenience of repeat tests.
GAIA ALDAS principal consultant is Paul Jennings, who has carried out many thousands of air leakage tests upon buildings & parts of buildings throughout the UK and around the world, for energy efficiency and fire protection purposes. More recently Paul has responded to designers needs & concentrated on design for airtightness, reviewing building designs and leading design workshops, often on site, to ensure that air permeability targets are met without delay and excessive costs. He is also a lecturer, a presenter and a trainer of air leakage testers, as well as the author of numerous articles relating to air permeability.
