Urban Regeneration

Rundown or challenged neighbourhoods often face multiple social problems combined with health problems for the people living in inadequate buildings. At the workshop experts discuss how we through urban regeneration can design energy renovation projects to help solve some of these problems.

Acoustic capabilities

From railways to tramways, roads to airports, good infrastructure is crucial to urban life, which can be very noisy. The resulting ground-borne vibration, traffic noise – and not to mention human noise pollution – all have a serious and negative impact on our wellbeing, especially in densely populated areas.

Outer walls

ROCKWOOL Insulation delivers a number of benefits beyond thermal performance in external walls, such as best in class fire resistance, exceptional noise reduction, water repellence as well as vapour permeability, and dimensional stability - meaning excellent fit and real world performance, for the lifetime of the building.

Cities that save water

Fresh water is our most precious resource. But extreme weather and fast-growing cities mean that unless we take measures to manage it more actively, it could also become scarcer.
