The health of our buildings as well as their decay is primarily connected to water
The aim of the UKCMB is the development of a moisture-safe built environment in the UK.
Many substantial building problems (including health problems) are caused by excessive or insufficient moisture. And yet we have very little research in the UK on moisture in buildings, a lack of good guidance, and minimal public and industry understanding. The UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings has been set up to address these issues.
We are @ETH_en to contribute to a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Regenerative Materials (earth, bio-based, reused). Tomorrow, @VMarincioni will speak about the sustainable retrofit of traditional buildings and the use of bio-based materials.
We are very excited to have Toby Cambray @Greengaugenergy as one of our doctoral researchers @UCL_IEDE! Hi is going to work in collaboration with @SPAB1877 and @SafeguardEurope advancing the knowledge on surface treatments for solid walls.
Big news for me and Greengauge: very excited to announce I have begun a PhD! I’m based at UCL but it’s all remote for now. The PhD is full time but I will continue to provide a small amount of technical input to Greengauge, and return to the business on completion.
Happy Monday everyone! Make this week one that you submit your contribution to the #ICMB21 ☺️ No max number of contributions per person! Details: https://bit.ly/33vUsoT
