“In Europe we are at the very beginning of an historic renovation revolution and this is exciting, but at Knauf Insulation we have always advocated the importance of quality renovation.
“It is not enough to simply renovate a building without assessing whether or not it is delivering the comfort that has been promised. The work must be carried out to the highest possible standards and those standards must be rigorously audited and proved to be effective.
“As new regulations are formulated in Europe to make this renovation revolution a reality, we are working hard with policy makers throughout 2021 to ensure theoretical promises of energy saving performance and improved living standards are delivered in reality.”
Quality is critical
Knauf Insulation has been involved in hundreds of thousands of renovation projects around Europe and has carried out hundreds of social housing pilot projects to improve renovation processes.
Barry Lynham, Managing Director of Knauf Energy Solutions (KES), says: “The pandemic has forced industries to be more innovative and focus on maximising the potential of the digital world.
“For several years now at KES, we have been refining retrofit techniques and material as well as using cloud computing, big data and digital monitors to demonstrate the effectiveness of a building renovation.
