Selected problems of thermal bridges in contemporary multi- -occupancy buildings

Maria Wesołowska,

In contemporary multi-occupancy buildings, each architecture studio has its own uniform and trademarked design for the external appearance of the structure. Façade features such as breaks, bays, balconies and cornices often generate energy and humidity problems. These require detailed analysis, both in terms of construction as well as physical aspects, so that elements are appropriately designed.
