We have teams equipped to test Air Inﬁltration, Water Leakage, Structural Performance, Roof Flood Testing, and Air Barrier in the ﬁeld. We will ensure the appropriate test procedures are applied, while making modiﬁcations or developing custom testing to ﬁt your speciﬁc needs. To devise the best chamber test arrangement, our work begins before we arrive at your job site. We carefully communicate with you to evaluate architectural details, shop drawings, and preliminary photographs to ensure the appropriate test procedures are applied. We take care of test equipment, equipment calibration, staging, access equipment and sffolding to ensure work proceeds smoothly. If required for speciﬁc projects, Intertek will modify standard procedures to test in accordance with project speciﬁcations.
