Although the basic idea of building is the same worldwide, building regulations and traditions abroad can vary greatly from those in Germany. This is often due to different climatic conditions. While fire and noise protection are largely independent of climatic conditions, it is generally much harder to transfer experience and requirements concerning thermal and moisture control to other countries.
As a result of numerous international projects, product developments and worldwide cooperations, the experts of Fraunhofer IBP have gained extensive know-how in this field. They also possess the necessary tools to assess energy efficiency and humidity issues related to buildings in the various climate zones around the globe.
Our routine examinations include, for example:
This enables us to develop energy-efficient construction concepts for growth markets, e.g. in Asia, which are adapted to the compact urban design and local climate. In addition, we work with industrial partners to develop new, cost-efficient building products and systems that offer users in the respective country not only a high technical quality but also added value by improving the indoor climate.
We provide answers to the following questions for our customers:
