Low Carbon Learning - St. Sophia's webinar

The Passivhaus EnerPHit Standard has been internationally recognised as an exemplar approach to building renovation. This webinar looks at the significance of utilising EnerPHit requirements and their associated benefits for the renovation of St Sophia's Primary School. The project was awarded funding as part of the Learning Estate Investment Programme (LEIP) in December 2020.

The refurbishment of this school aims to set new benchmarks for sustainable development, meeting EnerPHit standards while also creating an innovative and beautiful modern learning environment. This webinar will cover the project development, as well as delving into questions around embodied carbon and whole life carbon (WLC) in retrofit projects. This refurbishment, in East Ayrshire, will be a UK-first in terms of renovating an existing primary school to the EnerPHit standard.
