The Full pro clima System & 0.27 ACH in Kapiti
INTELLO® PLUS is a market-leading intelligent air barrier for all construction types, providing superior energy and moisture control. INTELLO® PLUS maximises the performance of your thermal insulation, whilst restricting internal moisture entering the building envelope. INTELLO® PLUS utilises Hydrosafe® technology, providing optimal protection against structural damage and mould, even in the event of unexpected moisture intrusion.
TESCON® VANA airtight sealing tape is an essential component of all air barrier systems. It is compatible with membranes, underlays as well as rigid sheathings, rigid wall underlays and rigid air barriers (RAB). TESCON® VANA is airtight and vapour permeable. It is flexible, easy to cut, and has a simple-to-remove release paper, ensuring maximum productivity during installation.
Blower Door testing is one of the most reliable methods of quantifying construction quality. The Blower Door test result is also one of the best predictors of future performance of a building. This is why building permeability testing is a common practice around the world as a means of quality assurance.

Luckily for Mike Craig at Mike Craig Builders (formally QBuild), the Christison family shared his vision and it is with the joint foresight that they managed to build a Passive House in the beautiful Kapiti. The single level home features the full pro clima weathertightness and airtightness systems along with ventilation systems installed by eHaus. Guy Shaw, a Passive House designer from Energy Architecture NZ, said he was a little concerned about working with Mike, who was already lined up to build the house…
“Success of a project depends not only on everyone’s skill set but also on their attitude. I’d never met Mike nor worked with him but the Christison family insisted he was going to build their house. I must say after meeting and working with him, I am not surprised they wanted Mike on the job. His workmanship and attitude are superb and the Blower Door test of 0.27 ACH speaks volumes.”
Nice pun Guy, and well done to everyone involved!
