Sustainable building starts with smart insulation, states Dirk Vermeulen, Head of Technical Management at Recticel Insulation. Energy efficient renovation requires a well thought-out approach to the entire building envelope. As far as new buildings are concerned, houses will be built to be increasingly energy efficient in the future, partly as a result of the increasingly stringent EPB regulations. For the existing housing stock, however, there is still a lot of work to be done!
With advancements in generative design, software algorithms, and robotic construction, the current construction processes are going to change quite a bit over the next three to ten years.
