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.
