Dealing with damp in traditional buildings webinar

Welcome to yet another appointment in this exciting series of online learning sessions by Green Building Encyclopaedia!

25% of the UK’s building stock is in need of energy upgrade.

One of the leading causes of low energy efficiency and structural problems in older buildings is the presence of damp and moisture within the building fabric. Furthermore, internally, excessive moisture can cause toxic mould overgrowth with consequences for human health and life.

In this session, we will address the most common causes of damp issues in traditional buildings and the possible remedies for each of them.

With the guidance of the expert author of the new standard “PAS 2035:2019 Retrofitting Dwellings for Improved Energy Efficiency” and a Retrofit Coordinator, we will address the following:

  • Modern vs Traditional buildings in relation to moisture
  • Most common sources of damp
  • Moisture balance in buildings
  • Design and construction techniques to address damp and moisture
  • Heating and ventilation strategies
  • Online tools. software and other resources available.

We encourage audience participation throughout and will end the session with a Q&A with your expert presenters.
