"Lidl Bulgaria" EOOD & CO.CD hired Studio APXE for preparation of design and consultancy package for improving the air tightness of the future Lidl store projects.
High level of air tightness is achieved with having complete concept well implemented in the design, carried out in its details and finally executed correctly with high quality. The subject starts from the design phase. Further on, during the construction, the general concept of air tightness and the specific measures and construction details must be well understood by the builders. On the other hand, the best results are achieved if the construction teams are provided with competent and cooperative support and, on the other hand, with the implementation of the site.
The prepared package of measures and construction detailed drawings will be applied to the currently under construction and newly built stores for the purpose of very good performance of the buildings during the mandatory Blowerdoor tests. We will visit the construction sites to control the quality of the air-tightness achieved. Testing of Lidl's shops is carried out by our partner Hexagon NDT Ltd., with whom we have a rich portfolio of passive house buildings we have realized and tested by them.
