Founded in 1989 in Belgium by Prof. Dr. Piet Standaert and Dr. Piet Houthuys, Physibel was a pioneer in simulating 2D and 3D heat transfer in buildings. The roots of our knowhow trace back to extensive research conducted at the University of Leuven, Belgium.
In 2018, a new chapter unfolded for Physibel as it was acquired by Wout Parys and Jelle Langmans, both PhD’s in Building Physics. With a fresh perspective and a commitment to building upon the rich legacy of the company, this transition marks a firm commitment to be a reliable and long-term partner for the global facade sector.
The name and logo of Physibel embody the company’s mission, encapsulating the convergence of physics (symbolized by the Greek letter Phi), visualization (represented by the wordplay on ‘visible’ and the eye), and our deep-rooted connection to Belgium.
The focus of Physibel lies firmly on continuous development of its software products. Through cooperation with the academic world and close contacts with our industry clients, the calculation algorithms and user friendliness are constantly being improved and new software tools are being developed.
After more than 35 years on the frontline of modelling heat transfer in construction elements, Physibel stands for a specialised team of engineers and developers with an extensive experience in building physics analysis and design.
We distinguish ourselves in the market through our trusted software products combined with fast and high-level support.
