The airtightness strategy and materials used to make my new build Passive House airtight is described in this video. I outline the use of airtight structural boards and Tescon Vana airtight tape.  I also explain how to pre-plan key junctions for follow on trades to improve performance, reduce complexity and reduce costs.
