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.
@Univ_Savoie's Prof Monika Woloszyn will be a keynote at #ICMB21 on the effects of moisture on #BuildingEnergyPerformance. Register here not to miss it and >85 excellent presentations on #MoistureInBuildings: https://bit.ly/3iN8c2Z @ukcmb @EPICentreUCL @UCL_IEDE https://twitter.com/yasemin_didem/status/1330620839914590213
Future regulations & standards MUST fully consider the link between energy reduction and moisture risk. The UK has the highest number of pre 1949 building in Europe. In new build and #retrofit a whole house approach is crucial & an appreciation of moisture in our climate @ukcmb
The renowned Hartwig Kunzel (Head of Department of Hygrothermics @Fraunhofer_IBP ) speaking now. A pioneer in hygrothermal simulation, research, field testing and lab/climate analysis. #buildingphysics #WUFI #geekheaven @ukcmb
