    That goes for all construction methods doesn't it?

    Wanted to follow up with a couple of things...

    First, the "Box Haus" mentioned earlier using EWI adhesive as the parge coat achieved 1.18 ACH (not sure what that was in UK BR permeability measurements) https://thebox-haus.weebly.com/posts/so-close

    I'm also wondering about belt and bracing: use render as the first layer, then spray over with https://www.ecomerchant.co.uk/walls/airtightness-products/blowerproof-liquid-airtightness-system/blowerproof-liquid-spray-applied-airtight-sealing-membrane-10kg.html . Will probably be expensive though.
    Having seen the picture of the insulation going on at this link
    IMO the brick wall will have to be very flat to get good adhesion with the thickness of the adhesive they seem to be using. I would be concerned about insufficient contact between the insulation and the adhesive caused by lumps/bumps holding the insulation of the wall

    Yes, I've seen that concern before about continuous adhesive application. Although not sure if it would compromise the AT.

    Maybe it gets "pushed aside" too much, thus making it discontinuous?
    It is not a concern about compromising the AT but rather the adhesion of the (very unbendable) thick EPS
