Alumasc Achieves BBA Approval for U-Value Calculations

u-value calculations

Having boasted a BBA Approved product portfolio for many years, Alumasc has further strengthened its service offer by gaining BBA Approval under the U-Value and Condensation Risk Competency Scheme.

The Scheme seeks to promote and assist accurate, objective and consistent calculation of U-Values and condensation risk within buildings.

To gain the Approval, Alumasc completed four separate stages, in which the appropriate technical competency and in-house procedural controls had to be demonstrated to ensure that calculations offered under the scope of the scheme will be accurate. Those stages were:

– an initial screening
– an office inspection
– validation and conclusions
– ongoing surveillance

Registration under the scheme provides reassurance to any specifier or user that the services or data being provided are supplied by an individual or company that has been subject to a rigorous independent assessment process. They can therefore be assured that this output is representative and reliable.

Alumasc also now have the facility to overwrite default u-values, which is particularly relevant for funded schemes where the carbon capture score is crucial. These calculations are obligatory for every funded project in Scotland.
