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.
RIBuild has a network strategy to communicate results and guidelines from the project.
Historic buildings built prior to 1945 make up a significant part of the European building stock.
