Whole Building Air Pressurization Testing: A Case Study

Williams College had high expectations for its new South Science Building for their Biology, Chemistry and Physics departments. It had just as high expectations for the building envelope. By setting goals and expectations early, the project team worked through all phases of the project to achieve a tight building envelope and ultimately achieve a leakage rate 60% better than specified. The design and construction team will present a project case study and outline what led to this successful project.
