This seminar provides architects with key information needed to deliver successful sustainable retrofit projects.
The session will demonstrate how to navigate sustainable refurbishment projects through the four stages of work. The speaker will use case studies of buildings from 19th and 20th century to focus on:
Practical advice will be provided on how to avoid some of the main pitfalls common to sustainable refurbishment and ensure a positive result; 'positive result' being both a project that has low carbon emissions and is a beautiful, comfortable building from the point of view of the client.
Critical issues in delivering successful sustainable refurbishment projects will be addressed including internal and external wall insulation, specifying low-impact building materials, ventilation and moisture control and integrating low carbon technologies - with the perspective of client, architect and contractor considered for each stage.
