Abstract

The National Construction Code does not contain comprehensive regulations on condensation and mould. Newly constructed Class 1 and Class 2 buildings are experiencing unacceptable levels of condensation, triggering mould growth and raising concerns in the building industry. It is therefore essential to understand the main cause of condensation problems, as medical studies have proved that mould affects health. A study of the latest construction techniques can help us get to the root of the condensation and mould problems in the industry.
