The Advisory Group will meet with the CKPs (UKCMB Board) 3 times per year giving advice about strategy, providing information about the sectors they represent, giving feedback on the work undertaken by the UKCMB, proposing areas and avenues of activity and assisting with specific management issues, funding and UKCMB initiatives.
Membership of the Advisory Group should therefore represent those most directly connected to the work of the UKCMB and most affected by moisture issues in buildings, along with those who are able to provide contextual overview and breadth of understanding relevant to moisture issues. Membership selection will prioritise concerned and knowledgeable individuals, who ideally should have knowledge of one or more of the following sectors:
- Industry (professional bodies, manufacturers, contractors, training bodies, standards and certification)
- Finance and insurance
- Users (Landlords, Building occupants)
- Advisory bodies
- Additional knowledge groups
Technical Working Groups
Technical Working Groups (TWGs) will be central to the work and the development of the UKCMB, providing input about concerns and knowledge gaps, scoping research issues, reviewing and then promoting and disseminating the findings of research. They provide a productive way to involve others both within and beyond the core knowledge partners in research and development work. In addition, through bringing together national expertise for the public good they will help reinforce the standing of the UKCMB as the main knowledge base and authority for building moisture issues in the UK. We also hope to involve many of the members of the TWGs in aspects of the research.
- TWG1: Monitoring & modelling of moisture in buildings
- TWG2: Ventilation, airtightness & moisture in buildings
- TWG3: Moisture in new build
- TWG4: Moisture in existing buildings & retrofit
- TWG5: Flooding and escape of water
- TWG6: Financial, insurance & legal context & consequences of moisture in buildings
