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.
Speaker: Frances Bradshaw: Partner, Anne Thorne Architects/Robert Prewett: Partner, Prewett Brzley Architects
