Increased environmental awareness has meant that many councils and private clients are now pledging to build to Passivhaus standards. So, what are the challenges involved in embedding Passivhaus principles within major building projects? How can we measure the benefits? And what does the future hold? In this forthcoming AT webinar, in partnership with Schüco, four key speakers will explore these questions and more.
Matthew Traub, associate at Allies & Morrison and Gwilym Still, Passivhaus leader at Max Fordham, will share their approach to designing the ultra-low energy, all-electric Cranmer Road student accommodation for King’s College, Cambridge – the first collegiate Passivhaus project and the largest Passivhaus development in the city.
Ann-Marie Fallon, associate director and certified Passivhaus designer at Architype, will outline the challenges involved in delivering primary and secondary schools to Passivhaus standards with a particular focus on three current projects.
Adam Booth, project architect at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios presents the practice’s competition-winning proposals for a Passivhaus housing complex of 150 low-energy apartments overlooking St Helier Harbour in Jersey.
Other key topics up for discussion include the role of the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP) in accurate design modelling and closing the performance gap, the five principles of Passivhaus design, energy use and carbon emissions, occupant comfort and health, effective strategies for post-occupancy evaluation, and cost considerations.
