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.
21 January 2016 RIBuild held the first open seminar about the project. The need and potential as well as the risks of internal internal insulation were discussed.
Often, internal insulation is the appropriate choice, when retrofitting older buildings, in order to maintain the external appearance for its architectural and cultural value.
