Energy efficiency is very important, but many recent changes to the ways buildings are built can increase risk. Only through the application of solid building science can we best avoid problems. Come to a workshop for building designers, architects, builders, and clients that tackles some of the more complicated matters of creating energy efficient buildings that are healthy to live and work in.
How do we create buildings that both save energy and protect health?
• Why does condensation form in my building, where it does, when it does?
• What level of sealing is good for health? When can sealing result in mould?
• When is mechanical ventilation required? How can I make it work better?
• How does climate guide best practice?
At this hands-on workshop, you’ll see and get to use the tools of building science yourself: infrared, blower door air tightness, and more!
CPD points available.
Lunch and refreshments will be served.
This is a free event.
