Building physics and retrofit design: Climate

04 December 2013

2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Venue:

Cardiff Metropolitan University, School of Management Building, Llandaff Campus, Western Avenue, Cardiff, CF5 2YB

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 to develop an understanding of the often complex issues involved.
