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.
The last round of tests in our @beisgovuk funded research aiming to find the potential of waterproofed #cavitywalls to receive #insulation under #WDR! Can’t wait to complete post processing data from this exciting piece of work 🤩 @CEGE_UCL @UCL_IEDE @HereEast
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
