Event description

Description

There are multiple policy pressures affecting the delivery of new homes in the UK, including the Hackitt Review, the Committee on Climate Change and forthcoming changes to the Building Regulations. At the same time, there are increasing reports of poor performance, in terms of quality, fire resistance and actual energy use. Measuring and understanding the actual performance of new homes is essential in order to track any improvements to the industry’s performance.

This event will therefore examine some of the policy changes for domestic buildings, along with emerging development in Building Performance Evaluation, and explore the implications of these changes on current practices.

We invite BPN Members and their guests to join us in Oxford on 3rd July.

Programme includes:

  • Hywel Davies, technical director at CIBSE to deliver a policy update
  • Prof Fionn Stevenson, author of the forthcoming Housing Fit For Purpose: Performance, Feedback and Learning, and Professor of Sustainable Design at the University of Sheffield
  • Prof Rajat Gupta (Professor of Sustainable Architecture and Climate Change, Director of OISD and LCB Group at
    Oxford Brookes University) updating us on the BPN State of the Nation research project
  • Anastasia Mylona on the CIBSE energy benchmark
  • Case study: Bicester Ecovillage BPE – Douglas Drewniak, Bioregional
  • Case study: Carrowbreck Meadow, Norwich – Sarah Lewis, Hamson Barron Smith
  • Networking over drinks from 17:30

Members are encouraged to come with a guest from another organisation.

If you are not yet a BPN Member, now may be the time to consider it. Please see our website for more information.
