The principles of building physics

When considering the principles of building physics and climate-responsive design, it is important to focus on how these may impact energy demand, carbon emissions, occupant comfort and well-being. This seminar will highlight important environmental design aspects, which are recommended to be considered during early design stages and will introduce tools which can assist during the design process.

RIBA has developed the 2030 Climate Challenge to help architects meet net zero (or better) whole life carbon for new and retrofitted buildings by 2030. It sets a series of targets for practices to adopt to reduce operational energy, embodied carbon and potable water. If all RIBA Chartered Practices meet the RIBA 2030 Climate Challenge targets, they will play their part in addressing this global crisis. More information and guidance can be found here.
