Diagnosis of the building envelope

This symposium is the final round of the research project of IWT Thermography as a gauge of the building envelope.

Ir. arch. Stéphanie Mangé explains the methodology as developed by BB to map out the feasibility of façade renovations.

This tool was created by, inter alia, the following studies:

  • Development of optimal (cost) renovation strategies for architecturally and historically valuable blocks in the context of the IST experimental 'Housing renovation: innovation in energy-efficient remodelling'. Case: Kielparktorens.
  • Feasibility examination for an energy renovation of the office building "Souverain 25".
  • Analysis of the façades of three buildings “K12 A, B and E” located on the campus of Ghent University Hospital.

Will also be addressed: moisture diagnosis, thermography, claims, flat roofs, impact on property values, etc.

On site you can get a notebook thermography, containing guidelines, potential and limitations of thermography in the building envelope.
