Interest in highly efficient buildings has been growing steadily, with there being plans for the introduction of these on a massive scale – plans which are even being put in practice in many countries. One major challenge is to attain the air-tightness needed for highly efficient buildings in the actual field of practice, to construct the building envelope so that it remains air-tight over a long period of time and to make quality assurance common practice. At the same time, highly efficient buildings must have a ventilation concept which ensures hygienic air exchange while preventing mould and dampness and minimizing concentrations of toxins. The 5th International BUILDAIR-Symposium ”Building and Ductwork Air-tightness“ takes place on October 21-22 2010 at the Danish Technical University in Copenhagen/Lyngby, Denmark. You can now submit your papers for this conference.
The 5th International BUILDAIR-Symposium ”Building and Ductwork Air-tightness“ takes place on October 21-22 2010 at the Danish Technical University in Copenhagen/Lyngby, Denmark.
The Symposium this year combines contributions from sciences and research with very practical oriented application knowledge and an intensive exchange between the participants.
The first day is up to air-tightness in sciences and up-to-date research. The practical aspects of the air-tightness issue will be presented on the second day under the title “BlowerDoor-Symposium”. The e.u.[z.] resumes the tradition of these very practical symposia which took place as national events until 2005.
