Passivhaus in the UK - What you need to know

Date: 11th September 2012 Time: 18:00 onwards
Location: Ecotech Centre, Turbine Way, Swaffham, Norfolk PE37 7HT Cost: £5 CIOB Members and £8 Non-Members

With over 30,000 Passivhaus buildings around the world but less than 45 certified projects in the UK, is this methodology appropriate for our housing market?

Certified Passivhaus Consultant and PHT member Chris Parsons from Parsons + Whittley will talk about his experience in delivering energy and comfort at a cost of around 10% of that in a standard house, with consequent carbon reductions. With a detailed and honest appraisal of the Wimbish and Ditchingham schemes for Hastoe Housing Association, Chris will deliver a ‘warts and all’ introduction to Passivhaus in the UK.

Wimbish Passivhaus recently won the 1st UK Passivhaus Awards Residential category.

A buffet and tea/coffee will be provided at 18.00.  Chris Parsons will commence his talk at 18.30. There will be a Q&A session at the end

Students, CIOB Non-Members and Colleagues are most welcome to attend
