The third episode of BuildingPerformanceInteractive monthly miniseries presented by Passive House Accelerator focuses on a practical and intelligent approach to carbon reduction emissions in EnerPHit projects within humid climates, such as the UK.
Taking a holistic approach to low-carbon design will enable architects, structural engineers, and practitioners to play an increasing role in reducing the operational energy use of #retrofitted buildings, achievable on a macro scale.
The EnerPHit project featured in this episode demonstrates how the retrofit steps can be replicable across all building types to achieve a high efficiency and comfort level.
Andrew Simmonds – CEO at AECB and Partner in Simmonds Mills Architects will exemplify how the use of WUFI, PHPP modelling, and AECB PHribbon tools can facilitate the design and accurate calculations of Embodied CO2 for Passive House and retrofits, in meeting the standard. He will also discuss the importance of monitoring real-life buildings for condensation.
Tim Hulse – Passive House Champion at EcoVert will discuss the sustainable practicalities, insulation, airtightness measures, and type of building components installed to enhance the envelope performance while minimising embodied carbon. Co-hosts: Dara McGowan (Partel), Mike Jacob (KISS House), Ben-Adam Smith (House Planning Help). Presented by: passivehouseaccelerator.com Guests: Andrew Simmonds – CEO at AECB and Partner in Simmonds Mills Architects; Tim Hulse – Passive House Champion at EcoVert .
