Background and expertice

Stig Geving has over 25 years of experience in research, consulting and information work within general building technology and building physics. From 2011 he has been a full professor at NTNU. In the period 2017-19 he has also been working part time as senior building physics consultant at Sweco Norway. Earlier he worked 9 years (in two periods) as researcher at SINTEF in Trondheim, interrupted by 4 years working as consultant in the project organization for a new hospital in Trondheim.

His main focus has been heat and moisture transfer in buildings and building components, with a special emphasis on envelope design, moisture simulations, moisture damages and practical moisture handling in the building process. Building physical issues in regard to energy retrofits and energy efficient buildings such as passive houses and zero energy buildings has also been a focus the recent years.

Geving has written a substantial number of textbooks, reports, papers and articles within these subjects. He is often presenting at conferences and other profesional arenas, in Norway and internationally.
