Before installing internal insulation in an existing building, it is good idea to do a simulation of whether it is moisture safe or if there is a risk of mould growth.
RIBuild will present a LCA and LCC software tool for assessment of the environmental benefits and affordability of energy renovations of historic buildings at the
Research activities in RIBuild include tests of various internal insulation systems and how they perform in actual buildings under various climate conditions.
November 2017 the External Expert Advisory Board commented on research methods and the plans for a web tool.
In the autumn of 2016 RIBuild conducted an online survey amongst practitioners in the construction industry to gain knowledge about their practical experiences with internal thermal insulation.
