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:

 

- 12 September, Glasgow

- 19 September, London 

- 10 October, Manchester 

- 5 December, Exeter

UK Passivhaus Conference 2018

13 November 2018. Leeds

(Partners Rates for STBA members)


Passivhaus & the road to zero carbon. In the UK, buildings in use account for 43% of CO2 emissions, providing a significant opportunity to make energy & carbon savings. At the same time, we have a responsibility to deliver healthy and productive environments, so must exceed ‘business as usual’.


Passivhaus is a proven route to help achieve these targets ans provide excellent occupant comfort and quality. Is the rigour and robustness of the Passivhaus Standard a step too far, and how do we pick up the pace to deliver solutions fast enough? Join the Passivhaus Trust in Leeds on the 13 November to debate all this and more.

 

Partner rate:£180+VAT 

Early bird rate expires on 30th September.

SPAB's Old House Eco Course

17 November 2018, London


In the rush to be 'eco', compatibility between traditional buildings and modern technologies and materials can be mistakenly ignored. Presented by Marianne Suhr and Roger Hunt, this course will explain how to avoid potential problems and will consider a holistic approach to retrofitting, while presenting a background to the latest building science with practical advice and examples of best practice.


The Old House Eco Course will be relevant primarily for owners of period properties (pre-1919), but also for building conservation professionals who may need to brief their clients on improving the energy efficiency of their homes.
