Climate: Building physics and retrofit design

22 January 2013

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Venue:

The Harry Hems Centre, Exeter

Description:

This seminar will explore how the principles of building physics should inform design decisions in retrofit projects. Presentations, with examples drawn from real projects, will address: carbon, energy consumption and measurement; energy movement and thermal transfer; airtightness and thermal bridging; ventilation, moisture and human comfort. The consequences – and potential pitfalls – of particular design strategies will be discussed. A number of short exercises will help attendees develop an understanding of the often complex issues involved. Speakers: Frances Bradshaw Partner, Anne Thorne Architects 
Robert Prewett Partner, Prewett Bizley Architects
