Most Australian councils and government departments are looking to improve the environmental credentials of their buildings, as well as discover new and innovative ways to reduce energy consumption and building maintenance costs. One area that has gone almost unnoticed or discussed in the carbon footprint and carbon neutral discussion is building envelope and duct air leakage. Building envelope air barrier evaluation and retrofitting is commonplace for European and US government buildings. Council and government buildings in these climates are exposed to higher temperature fluctuations, yet exhibit better comfort levels, air quality, and environmental credentials than many similar Australian buildings. The difference is building envelope and duct air barrier evaluation and retrofitting,
