The Building Designers Association of Australia (BDAA) presents Condensation Symposium 2019 in Sydney on 6 November 2019.

Hosted by BDAA in association with Weathertex and Caroma, the symposium titled ‘Breaking the Mould: Designing to Prevent Condensation & Mould in Efficient Buildings’ aims to address the vexatious issue of excessive condensation and mould in residential as well as commercial buildings.

According to the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), interstitial condensation is present in every third Australian home.

Through this symposium – their third Condensation event – BDAA will explore how mould and condensation originate in Australian buildings, and analyse methods to prevent the resulting damage and health impact.

Key participants in the symposium include Dr Mark Dewsbury, University of Tasmania, who will explain how condensation forms in building structures; Dr Heike Neumeister-Kemp, Mycolab/ Mycotec, who will explore the topic of mould-related disease; Jesse Clarke of Pro Clima, who will demonstrate how to discover if your designs are prone to developing mould by utilising building physics and modelling; Daniel Kress of Smart Plus Living, who will expand on how building physics can be utilised holistically in design and construction to not only make buildings healthy, but eminently comfortable and efficient; and Sean Maxwell of Pro Clima, who will present on building physics – touch & feel.

Breaking the Mould: Designing to Prevent Condensation & Mould in Efficient Buildings will culminate in an interactive panel session, during which experts will take audience questions on this important topic.

Date and time: Wednesday 6 November 2019; 9.30 am to 4.30 pm

Location: Caroma Flagship, 39, Collins St. Alexandria, Sydney
