Air Tightness Testing at Train Stations

Air Tightness Testing at New Suburban Train Stations

Wednesday 1 March, 2017

Recently CETEC conducted air tightness testing for John Holland at four new train operator offices which were constructed during the Level Crossing Removal Projects at Bentleigh, Ormond, McKinnon and Gardiner train stations in Melbourne’s inner suburbs.

This project involved setting up a high-powered blower door system to measure the air permeability rate of these new offices for Metro Trains' station staff and PSOs. All measurements were conducted according to the UK Air Tightness Testing & Measurement Association (ATTMA) L2 technical standard ‘Measuring Air Permeability in the Envelopes of Buildings (non-dwellings)’.

This testing will assist John Holland in receiving Green Star innovation credit points under the new Green Star innovation challenge for Building Air Tightness

As well as testing according to the ATTMA standard, our certified equipment can also test according to ASTM E779 and ISO 9972 for Green Star, Passivhaus and ASHRAE requirements. Furthermore, we are able to use a combination of techniques to determine air leakage points such as smoke testing and thermal imaging.
