Building Life Consultancy, in conjunction with the Fraunhofer Institute of Building Physics, will be hosting a 2 day workshops on WUFI® Pro hygrothermal (heat & moisture) simulation software. This workshop will teach attendees to use Fraunhofer’s WUFI® Pro software for simulating heat and moisture transfer through building fabric for the purpose of assessing risk and preventing interstitial condensation. Focus will be on the practical application of the software with emphasis on its use in the UK and Ireland. Topics discussed will include fundamentals of building physics, practical examples with WUFI® Pro, interpretation of results, the market context for WUFI in the UK and Ireland, and a review of completed case studies. Attendees will learn how to input a wall or roof, its orientation and location, and run simulations on different configurations. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to work on their own problem build-ups. The workshop is intended for architects, engineers, insulation suppliers, system manufacturers, builders, and anyone with a focus on interstitial condensation, healthy buildings, conservation and fabric performance. No previous experience with the WUFI® Pro software is required. For the Glasgow course, we are offering a discounted ‘early bird’ rate of £500 for bookings made before the 17th August. The full price of £600 will apply after this date. Group discount available (2 or more persons). Sole traders and companies registered in Ireland or Scotland may be able to avail of up to 50% funding. Each of the 2 day courses equates to 13 CPD points.
