Building physics

Energy saving, sustainability, thermal insulation, moisture protection, creative building physics

We provide detailed answers to questions on all physical aspects of the thermal envelope of buildings. User comfort and creative design of a particular construction project are taken into account just as much as the technical, material and economic possibilities. We offer the following services in the field of construction physics.

EnEV - Energy Saving and Sustainability

  • All questions and proofs regarding the Energy Savings Ordinance (EnEV certificate for residential and non-residential buildings, existing structures as well as structural element certificates and energy pass)
  • Energy consultation, economic efficiency analysis and grant applications for energy saving measures
  • Passive house design from preliminary estimation and feasibility to the certified passive house according to PHI and PHPP
  • Advice on sustainability and life cycle analysis of buildings or individual building elements.

Thermal Physics and Moisture Protection

  • DIN 4108-2, proof of minimum requirements for thermal insulation
  • Assessment of damage due to mould
  • DIN 4108-7,  airtightness of buildings - requirements, recommendations and examples for planning and performance
  • Measurement of airtightness, blower door test
  • DIN 4108-2, proof of thermal protection in summer
  • Thermal building simulation
  • EN 15026, hygrothermal performance of building elements, instationary method (WUFI)
  • Moisture measurements, long-term measurements with data logger, evaluation
  • Assessment and optimization of buildings regarding moisture transport processes
  • Measurement and assessment ofold, existing and newwall andplaster systems exposed to moisture (efflorescence, salt, mould)
  • Optimization of multi-layered structures.
