Retrofit Eco Solutions - Eco Workshop
This workshop covers one of the most important eco issues today: What practical measures can be taken with existing buildings to make them more sustainable and energy efficient? Our experts will explain the options available to those interested in retrofitting eco technologies into their homes and advise on everything from achieving air tightness, insulation requirements and design considerations, to ventilation issues and how to choose between the array of windows and doors that are on the market.
This day will look at the particulars that are required when building a high performance property or one that utilises natural materials. It will also cover the role that the self builder plays in the construction process, whether it be self project managing, package managing or using sub contractors – addressing the relative merits and drawbacks of each route.
Featuring Practical workshops, guided educational tours and real life case studies this is an event not to be missed by anyone interested in Passivhaus.
