Adapting residential buildings to summer heat - training courses show how this can succeed

Long periods of heat in summer are increasingly becoming a challenge for the housing stock in central Germany. However, building structures and building technology can be adapted effectively and economically, thereby safeguarding the quality of life. This has been shown by studies in the HeatResilientCity research project. The project team is now imparting this knowledge to the housing and real estate industry in a series of training courses. The first seminars will take place on 19 May in Erfurt and on 13 June in Dresden. Further training courses will follow in autumn.

The first dates of the training course "Heat adaptation in housing stock: effective, cost-efficient, stock-improving" are being offered in cooperation with the Thuringian Housing and Real Estate Association (Verband Thüringer Wohnungs- und Immobilienwirtschaft e. V.) and the Association of Saxon Housing Cooperatives (Verband Sächsischer Wohnungsgenossenschaften e. V.). They are aimed at employees of cooperative and municipal housing companies who are responsible, for example, for property management, construction planning, tendering or maintenance, as well as at people who look after tenants or are responsible for communicating with them.

The courses will be held in German. A participation fee will be charged.
