Certification

Since its very beginning, AC Engineering has followed the certification process suggested for innovative building systems both at European level and at extra-European level.

Here under are the tests accomplished:

  • Test report No 39120/32: Study of the structural performance of polystyrene and steel panels named Home Done – Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of the University of Pavia;
  • Test Report No 333758:Reaction to fire of a vertical non-load bearing element according to UNI EN 1363-1:2012 and UNI EN 1363-1:2015 standards;
  • Life Cycle Assessment of the Home Done building system manufactured by AC Engineering – Prof. Arch, Adriana S. Sferra, Planning Department, Design, Architecture technology of the University of Rome — La Sapienza;
  • Test Report No: RJ5337-1: Home Done Wall Panels with two grids and with four grids: Performance Testing in accordance with Sections 9, 11 and 14 of ASTM E 72-15, Standard Test Methods of Conducting Strength Tests of Panels for Building Construction – QAI Laboratories, Certification Testing Inspection;
  • Test Report n. 39633/165: Study related to the structural performance of the polystyrene and steel panels named Home Done – Civil Engineering and Architecture Department of the University of Pavia;
  • REPORT 1.2017/HOME DONE: Test results related to the experiments on frost-defrost cycles (UNI EN 13687-4:2003) and damping cycles – UV (UNI EN ISO 16474-3:2014) performed on the Home Done panels – Civil and Building Engineering and Architecture of the Università Politecnica delle Marche;
  • REPORT 2.2017/HOME DONE: Test results of the thermo-energetic and humidity analysis and of the experimental activity for the determination of the in-action transmittance (UNI EN ISO) and of the air-tightness (UNI EN ISO 9972:2015) on the building system and on the Home Done components — Civil and Building Engineering and Architecture of the Università Politecnica delle Marche;

Here under are the certification on the implementation phase:

  • European Technical Evaluation VTE Art. 26 Regulation UE n.305/2011 preliminary to the release of CE Labeling for the Home Done structural panels made in armed EPS at high density for kit housing unit – ITC CNR Building technology Institute, National Council of Research;
  • Technical evaluation of the performances and of the satisfaction of the requirement of the Home Done Building System — QAI Laboratories, Certification Testing Inspection in accordance with the protocol of experimentation approved by ICC-ES — International Council Code for Evaluation Service, following the technical rules on structural and thermal priorities:
  • 2015 International Building Code
  • 2015 International Residential Code
  • 2014 Florida Building Code – Building, excluding HVHZ provisions
  • 2013 California Building Code, excluding CBC Chapter 7A
  • 2013 California Residential Code, excluding Section 327
  • EPA Seal & Insulated with ENERGYSTAR

AC Engineering not only has certifications attesting the quality and characteristics of its building system but understands the importance of reaching excellence even at the company management level therefore, in 2017 AC Engineering has achieved the UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 certification granted by the Tϋv Italia institute.
