10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Truro College, Truro
The climate may change but our wish for a cosy home in winter, and a cool home in summer does not. Peter Warm, one of the leading Passivhaus consultants in the UK, talks about how the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP) can be used to design both summer and winter conditions, with a particular reference to retrofitting existing buildings, and the challenges that this brings. Delegates are assumed to have a basic understanding of insulation techniques, and the aim is that they will leave this workshop feeling wiser about which insulation and airtightness methods are low risk, and which high risk!
Speaker: Peter Warm is a Chartered Energy Conservation Engineer with a strong interest in understanding how the building fabric works. His experience is varied between research and practical on site work. Currently, Peter is a partner in Warm: Low Energy Building Practice with his daughter Sally Godber. Peter is accredited by the Passivhaus Institut in Darmstadt to provide certification and consultancy for Passivhaus schemes. Currently, he is providing connsultation on new build schemes including St Ive Rural Passivhaus and several Passivhaus retrofit projects.
