Conservation Workshop

It is estimated that there are six million solid wall traditional buildings, making up 23% of the UK housing stock. Appropriate improvements to the energy performance of these will form an important element to increasing energy efficiency and sustainability. Currently much refurbishment practice is based on modelled assumptions of building performance.

However, how appropriate are these assumptions with regard to older, solid wall properties that make up much of our historic building stock? Using data measured from a variety of real historic building refurbishment projects, this seminar will look at performance both before and after refurbishment, using the information to judge both the risks and opportunities associated with retrofitting older buildings to improve their energy efficiency.
