QUALICHeCK Webinar | Interesting and innovative approaches for improved building envelope performance

Share this Post:

Tuesday 24 January 2017, 10:00 am Brussels time (CET)



The energy challenges for the building stock require ambitious but feasible approaches to secure their performance, including the performance of the building envelope. This webinar aims to give insights into 3 interesting approaches:


  •     An approach with voluntary guidelines to high thermal performing roofs
  •     Real examples whereby vacuum insulation panels are used for retrofitting listed buildings
  •     A fully implemented approach in the UK regarding acoustical performance based on robust details and the possible relevance for thermal and overall building performance.
