• A parametric study of the energy performance and carbon footprint of super-insulation in terrace constructions 

      Skaar, Christofer; Gaarder, Jørn Emil; Sletnes, Malin (Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Energy requirements for buildings are continually tightened, as seen in the ambitions to introduce near zero-energy building (nZEB) requirements in Norwegian and European building codes from 2020. One consequence of this ...
    • Climate Adaptation in Maintenance Operation and Management of Buildings 

      Grynning, Steinar; Gradeci, Klodian; Gaarder, Jørn Emil; Time, Berit; Lohne, Jardar; Kvande, Tore (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The aim of this paper is to analyze the basic criteria, trends, applications, and developments related to climate adaptation in building maintenance and operation management (MOM) practices in Norway. Investigations conducted ...
    • Climate Adaptation of School Buildings through MOM – A Case Study 

      Grynning, Steinar; Gaarder, Jørn Emil; Lohne, Jardar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The aim of the study was to map routines and planning tools concerning climate adaptation measures in buildings based on an analysis of a case building. The case was used to assess the strategy and main challenges of ...
    • Energy Upgrading of Basement ExteriorWalls: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly 

      Skaar, Christofer; Gaarder, Jørn Emil; Bunkholt, Nora Schjøth; Sletnes, Malin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2023)
      Most of today’s buildings will still be in use in 2050 and upgrades should therefore contribute to reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint. This paper addresses a challenge for upgrading of basement exterior walls ...

      Gullbrekken, Lars; Grynning, Steinar; Gaarder, Jørn Emil (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Buildings that are designed to meet high-energy performance requirements, e.g., passive houses, require well-insulated building envelopes, with increased insulation thicknesses for roof, wall and floor structures. We ...
    • Våtere klima gjør massivtretak utsatt for fukt 

      Gaarder, Jørn Emil; Pettersen, Trine Dyrstad (Journal article, 2021)
      Bygging med massivtreelementer blir mer og mer vanlig, og med våtere vær i vente bør bransjen skjerpe fokuset på fuktsikker byggeprosess. Undersøkelser viser nemlig at innebygd nedbør i massivtretak kan ta årevis å tørke ut.
