We can carry out post-construction testing for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Formaldehyde

We have significant experience of the specialised and stringent methods specified under BREEAM Hea02, Home Quality Mark (HQM) and other compliance standards and we will provide a firm quotation for carrying out this work. We will also provide advice and guidance for your project manager to help create the correct environment for the tests. The testing standards stipulated are usually the following:

  • BS EN ISO 16000-4:2004 Diffusive sampling of Formaldehyde in air
  • BS EN ISO 16000-6: VOCs in air by active sampling
  • BS EN ISO 16017-2:2003 VOCs – indoor, ambient and workplace air by passive sampling
  • BS EN ISO 16000-3:2001 Formaldehyde and other carbonyls in air by pumped sampling

Testing for VOCs and Formaldehyde will also bring the following benefits:

  • Proof that the building is safe to use (in terms of VOC and Formaldehyde levels) at the time of project handover
  • Adherence to the UKAS testing standards referenced in BREEAM, HQM and other standards
  • Independent third party testing that can clearly be seen as un-biased
  • Specific advice on what action is appropriate if the results indicate a cause for concern
