Due to the increasing requirements of legislation on energy efficiency, and the growing requirements for comfort in commercial and residential buildings, the renovation of existing buildings is becoming a more and more urgent goal. When renovating or revitalizing older buildings, removing mold and preventing it from reappearing is a priority problem, apart from the issues of moisture damage in masonry and wall drying, as well as improving energy efficiency. However, it is a major challenge for recent building stock and not least for new buildings to remediate defects and structural damage, and to prevent mold.
Planners and contractors working in remediation practice receive a well-founded academic continuing education course on basic principles, biology, as well as construction engineering, and building law interrelationships in the case of mold problems. In this way, they can use the acquired know-how to expand their own specialist skills and conduct an interdisciplinary dialog with experts working in specific fields.
The university course is designed for architecture and engineering offices, construction companies and professionals, as well as persons working in building management, local authorities and interest groups, who have a relevant background in the construction industry.
