Blower-door Testing at a Logistics Center in Lombardy

Our blower-door test at the Amazon logistics center in Casirate

We performed some airtightness testing at the new logistics center in the province of Bergamo. The inspected building is approximately 370.000 m3 in volume and has a heat-dissipating surface of some 44.000 m2.

The logistics building, made up of a warehouse plus some annexes with offices and services, underwent a thorough inspection with a blower door test for large buildings to check its airtightness, a leakage inspection for air leak detection, a thermal bridges inspection with thermal bridge thermography, and a panelboards infrared inspection to check panel boards with thermography.

Our blower door tests were performed under the requirements of the BREEAM® certification obtaining an extremely performing value of q50 lower than 1.5 cu.m./h/sqm at a pressure rate of 50Pa.
