Retrofitting Traditional Buildings: Principles and Practice - The Green Register


In this one-day technical training course STBA Technical Director, Nicholas Heath, examines current issues, solutions and emerging best practice in how to achieve ‘responsible retrofit’ – sustainable, low-energy traditional buildings with retained character, minimal risk to buildings and occupants and real benefits for all.

 

Principles including moisture movement, thermal bridging, building and insulation materials, energy assessments, planning and finance are complemented by practical solutions for domestic buildings, with a focus on solid walls, windows and ventilation as part of a whole-building approach.

 

Practical application is demonstrated by case studies and practical sessions, and technical detail encompasses recent research projects published by English Heritage, Historic Environment Scotland, SPAB, the Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance (STBA) and others.

 

Both good and bad practice will be covered, in order to highlight the importance of adopting an appropriate, responsible approach to traditional building retrofit. Case studies of large-scale solid wall insulation failures will be presented alongside comprehensive new guidance on how to avoid these pitfalls and adopt robust approaches to area-based insulation schemes. 

 

Dates and Venues:

 

- 25 April, Brighton

- 6 June, Sheffield

- 27 June, Bristol

- 12 September, Glasgow

- 19 September, London 

- 10 October, Manchester

ECO Innovation Stakeholder Workshop 

4 April 2018, London


In co-ordination with the BEIS ECO team, the Sustainable Energy Association and the Energy Saving Trust are hosting a free workshop focused on how the Energy Company Obligation could be designed to encourage and support innovation.


The output from the event will feed directly into the consultation process. The consultation is due to be published shortly and as such this event offers an excellent opportunity to help shape the future of the scheme. 


We hope that several of our members and Supporting Organisations will be able to attend. It is important that, in the enthusiasm to 'rush to retrofit' to impossibly high notional levels, we bring some reality to the debate. 


Spaces are limited so to register your interest, please click here.

Project Management and Supervision: 

Historic & Traditional Buildings 

2 May, 2018, London  - CIOB Academy


This 1-day course, led by John Edwards, will cover the pertinent issues concerning historic and traditional buildings, and best practice for build quality strategies and processes. It will begin with the concept of project management and project supervision, including how these skills apply in the historic environment and how dealing with it is different. The course will then go through the various stages including project initiation, feasibility, development, delivery, completion and end with occupation of the building and its continued care. There will also be a focus on developing work proposals, significance analysis, and heritage impact assessments, including justifying them in a way that balances the full range of issues from historic importance to commercial and use considerations.
