DUBiT - research in construction techniques, real estate and climate control.
International program SURETIES - sustainable refurbishment techniques for Industrial enterprises.
The research wants to answer following questions:
How can we refurbish non or poorly insulated existing industrial buildings in a correct, sustainable, efficient and economical way in order to improve the quality of the building envelope? Focus on improvement of air tightness and diminishing the heat and cold transmission of the construction.
How can we stimulate SMEs to invest in low carbon effective refurbishment?
The main goals of the research are:
Lower impact of CO2 emission.
Improve the inner climate of the industrial buildings.
Better working conditions (health, comfort) for the employers in the SME buildings which increases the productivity.
More work employment in the refurbishment / building sector.
