This paper presents results of a study concerning the hygrothermal and durability performance of timber construction wall and bottom slab assemblies built in “passive house technology” for habitable basements of floating houses. Highly-insulated basement systems made of solid timber boards were developed, simulated and monitored and with regard to hygrothermal performance and furthermore, the probable durability investigated. The results of the simulations will be compared with in-situ measurements, which are carried out at an test set-up.
