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.
Our commercial director Colin King @BRE_Group and technical manager Valentina Marincioni @UCL_IEDE are contributing to the CPD on energy renovation of traditional buildings organised by @CarrigINT and @HeritageHubIRE
A new guide recently published by the UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings (@UKCMB) and supported by @NHBCFoundation gives homeowners much-needed guidance on understanding #moisture in newly built homes. http://www.nhbc.co.uk/media-centre/articles/pressreleases/top-tips-prevent-moisture-new-build-homes/ #construction #constructionnews #MondayWisdom
Useful insight on current modelling capability for moisture evaluation yesterday by @VMarincioni. Good to read more following: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0360132318301987?via%3Dihub. Thanks to all the other speakers and @ukcmb for an inspiring event.
