Architects together with teams of specialty consulting engineers design the built environment. The design details selected during the design process determine the building quality for the life of the building. Due to the linear process, the impact of design decisions is often not delivered back to the original design team, and poor design detailing can be carried over from project to project resulting in higher costs and missed targets. By considering moisture-safety during design, goals of healthy indoor climates, longevity of building services and building envelopes, and energy consumption can be reached and surpassed.
We invite the design community to participate in our online survey so that we can customize our research to meet your needs. All survey participants’ data is used confidentially. The online questionnaires for architects and engineers are available in the CIB W040 member languages.
Graduate and Post-Graduate students from architecture and engineering faculties are invited to contact the coordinating university to conduct their thesis within the framework of CIB W040.
