A typical tunnel detail for basement ventilation would typically include the following elements:
- Inlet vents: These are located near the bottom of the basement walls and allow fresh air to enter the basement.
- Outlet vents: These are located near the top of the basement walls and allow stale air to exit the basement.
- Ductwork: This is used to connect the inlet and outlet vents and can be made of various materials such as aluminum, steel, or PVC.
- Ventilation fans: These are used to force the air through the ductwork and can be controlled by a thermostat or manually.
- Air filters: These are used to remove dust and other particles from the air before it enters the basement.
- Vents to the exterior: This can be a simple opening in the wall or a louvered vent, which allows the stale air to be expelled outside.
It’s important to note that tunnel ventilation systems should be designed by a professional engineer and be compliant with local building codes and regulations.

A typical tunnel detail drawing for basement ventilation would include the following information:
- A plan view of the basement showing the location of the inlet and outlet vents, ductwork, ventilation fans, and air filters.
- A section view of the basement showing the location of the ductwork and how it connects to the inlet and outlet vents.
- A detail of the connection between the ductwork and the inlet and outlet vents, including any insulation or sealant used.
- A detail of the ventilation fan, including the size, model, and manufacturer.
- Electrical schematics showing the wiring of the ventilation fan and any controls.
- Dimensioned drawings to scale.
- A general note indicating the standards, codes or regulations the design is complying with
These drawings should be prepared by a professional engineer or architect and should be reviewed by the appropriate authorities to ensure compliance with local building codes and regulations.
