Description

HEALTHY PASSIVE BUILDINGS: REALITY AND LESSONS FROM PRACTICE

The EAA and SEDA invite you to an afternoon to discuss and address how problems of polluted internal environments in low energy buildings can arise, and what can be done to address this. As we try to make our buildings to be highly air-tight to reduce energy consumption, are we making our interiors bad for us and the fabric of the structure? Is it something that can be managed, and are there ways to achieve both?

The seminar brings together a group of key architects, engineers and constructors, researchers and teachers, who have been working to understand the issues in projects in Scotland. Their presentations will include:
• The results of surveys of air quality in new low energy housing in Scotland, highlighting particular issues and lessons that need to be learnt
• Research on best practice design guidance and innovative ventilation systems
• Strategies for specification and design to maximize air quality in passive and low energy buildings
• Lessons from contractors involved in passive design standard projects

You will have the chance to ask presenters questions, and discuss possible ways forward. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.
