AbstractThis paper is intended as an update on recent developments that affect provision of ventilation air to the building interior for the occupants. Background information is provided on the trend to airtightness in small buildings, how it is reflected in building regulations and why this issue should interest practitioners. Following this is a discussion of current responses to these issues, namely ventilation systems, and how these systems interact with the building. Finally, some practical design considerations are presented.
