The market uptake of BIM (Building Information Modelling) is rapidly growing in nearly all European countries and one can assume that this trend will continue and even accelerate in the coming years.
In practice, there was until recently in most countries little to no attention for BIM as a support tool for the regulatory assessment of the energy performance of buildings. A smart use of BIM can be a win-win situation for both areas, whereby there surely are still several bottlenecks and challenges ahead of us.

The tenth International BUILDAIR Symposium “Airtight Buildings, Thermography and Ventilation Systems in Practice”, was intended for all measuring teams, energy consultants, planners, and architects. Experts presented their expertise and shared their experience. The symposium promoted mutual exchange and cooperation across national borders in order to facilitate buildings’ energy efficiency. The parallel exhibition presented products and technologies regarding building airtightness, ventilation and thermal imaging.

The 14th international conference of indoor air quality and climate -Indoor Air 2016 will bring together the whole indoor air and climate community. The technical programme will be fostering multi-disciplinary collaboration, workshops, interactive poster sessions, short courses and social media discussions. It covers all research related to indoor air quality and climate: from health effects and epidemiology to source and airflow fundamentals over every possible effect that modifies both and the exposure in between.
