2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Humanities Building, Broadcasting Place, Leeds Metropolitan University
This seminar will explore how the principles of building physics should inform design decisions in retrofit projects. Presentations, with examples drawn from real projects with practical exercises will address:
Carbon, energy consumption and measurement,
Energy movement and thermal transfer,
Air tightness and thermal bridging,
Ventilation, moisture and human comfort.
The consequences – and potential unintended consequences and pitfalls – of particular design strategies will be discussed. A number of practical short exercises will be used to illustrate issues raised and help deepen understanding of the complex issues involving building physics and retrofit projects.
Speakers: Frances Bradshaw, Partner, Anne Thorne Architects
Robert Prewett, Partner, Prewett Bizley Architects
