Building physics and retrofit design

18 September 2013

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Venue:

Humanities Building, Broadcasting Place, Leeds Metropolitan University

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 with practical exercises will address:

Carbon, energy consumption and measurement,
Energy movement and thermal transfer,
Air tightness and thermal bridging,
Ventilation, moisture and human comfort.

The consequences – and potential unintended consequences and pitfalls – of particular design strategies will be discussed. A number of practical short exercises will be used to illustrate issues raised and help deepen understanding of the complex issues involving building physics and retrofit projects.

Speakers: Frances Bradshaw, Partner, Anne Thorne Architects
Robert Prewett, Partner, Prewett Bizley Architects
