Danish Building Research Institute at Aalborg University (AAU), the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Intro Flex and Erik Møller Architects (EMA) participate in the RIBuild research programme.
AAU is in charge of the overall management and coordinates the communication of RIBuild.
AAU is also in charge of the work package that provides data for material properties and threshold values for historic building materials and existing insulation materials. These data serve as a background for material characterisation models and guidelines for safe insulating measures.
DTU is in charge of developing the guidelines for internal insulation of historic buildings based on the methodologies developed in the early phases of the RIBuild programme. The purpose of these guidelines is to help decision-making about whether internal insulation is relevant and affordable.
The guidelines are evaluated and validated on demonstration projects. The demonstration project will show how the guidelines optimise the design and implementation of internal insulation and how they increase the energy efficiency of and comfort in historic buildings in an economic and environmental friendly way.
