SITACx division of Southern Independent Testing Agency, specializing in Air Barrier Testing, completed testing on Eckerd College Molecular Science Building with over 113,900 square feet of surface area. With coordination and due diligence with Biltmore Construction and Cannon Design, phase one of the testing indicated only .16 cfm/sqft of leakage and phase two only .11 cfm/sqft, which was substantially lower than anticipated. SITACx was prepared with six blower door fans with the capacity to move over 33,000 cfm of air volume if necessary.
