Passivhaus Awareness - This event has already finished


24 March 2011
CUBE, Manchester

Free half day seminar

Details :

The Passivhaus Standard is the fastest growing low energy standard in Europe with over 20,000 building realised to date, with many more currently being designed and constructed. Passivhaus buildings have a high level of indoor air quality and roughly achieve a 75% reduction in space heating requirements compared to the standard practice for UK new build.

This event is aimed at raising awareness of the Passivhaus standard amongst those with an interest in low-energy design, and construction. It introduces the delegates to the Passivhaus standard, highlighting the basic characteristics of Passivhaus buildings, the certification requirements and how to set about designing a building to the standard. The morning will finish with a demonstration of the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP), the design and certification tool used to model Passivhaus.
