Building physics deals with thermal and sound insulation as well as structural fire protection.

Thermal insulation, moisture protection
The main purposes of thermal insulation and moisture protection are:
- to reduce the loss of energy
- to avoid damages at a building due to weather conditions
- to create a comfortable, healthy living and working conditions

Sound insulation
In order to reduce molestations caused by sounds of traffic, living or working, suitable constructive measures against the spread of airborne and impact sound are necessary. Special attention has to be given to the avoidance of sound bridges.

Structural fire protection
Structural provisions (e.g. choice of suitable building materials and systems, security measures for endangered structures) have to ensure the necessary fire protection.

The services of our firm comprise conceptional consulting regarding thermal insu- lation, sound insulation and structural fire protection as well as design and specifi- cation of adequate measures to comply with public regulations and the user's re- quests.
