Sustainable Development is described in specific documents as ‘’development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’’ When this definition is applied to the building industry there is no room for materials or specifications that do not provide this outcome. It is Health Based Building’s commitment to Sustainable Development that brought Foreverbreathe Specification to market.
Foreverbreathe Specification brings a combination of high-performance vapour permeable building materials together to ensure the built environment is designed to migrate moisture away from the indoor space with minimum energy use and minimal energy loss. Adhering to aims of sustainable development ensures these materials do not contain harmful chemicals or the ability to release harmful chemicals that impact indoor air quality and the environment.
Foreverbreathe Specification is the new standard in high performance building. Foreverbreathe Specification embraces the airtight principle to reduce air exchanges and energy use while departing from the inclusion of whole home mechanical ventilation systems. A vast percentage of moisture within natural air infiltration via the specification is managed via the specification’s breathable building components. These high-performance components inclusive of insulation are specifically manufactured to establish hygroscopic moisture conversion within wall and ceiling cavities.
Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) is included in locations that create high levels of moisture such as kitchens and bathrooms. Velux solar powered window technology is included to further ventilate moisture and reduce temperature on demand.
Health Based Building have continued its commitment to Foreverbreathe Specification and sustainable development by constructing a Foreverbreathe Demonstration Home on HBB’s location 1062 Colombo Street Christchurch New Zealand. The Foreverbreathe Demonstration Home will be open to the public and available for events of importance to promoting sustainable development from the 1st of March 2021.
