This guide will help designers, contractors and surveyors seeking to improve the performance of new and upgraded dwellings. It describes some of the available tests, their advantages and, where relevant, gives guidance on specification. Post-construction testing methods can help identify defects which may have been hidden within the depth of the structure during construction. Such defects could lead to increased running costs, discomfort and deterioration of the building fabric.
