He supervised the thermal insulation of the facades of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai.

“Expansion joint at 25th meter: is it problematic, and what do we have to deal with?

The author discusses research results on external thermal composite systems (ETICS) resistance to variable hygrothermal conditions in the scope exceeding the requirements of EAD 040083-00-04040 pt. “External thermal insulation composite system (ETICS) with renderings”. The author will describe issues related to the impact of various thermal insulation materials use and their properties on the deformation occurrence on the facade, its durability, and safety of use.
