Location: The Centre of Refurbishment Excellence, Normacot Road, Stoke On Trent, ST3 1PR Cost: £100, free to eligible SME's

This unit is a complementary introduction to Passivhaus Trust's more intensive Retrofit Masterclass and is presented in collaboration with the Centre of Refurbishment Excellence; delivered by:

  • Mark Elton (Partner, sustainableBYdesign)
  • Robert Prewett (Owner, Prewett Bizley Architects)

This introductory session will explain how the Passivhaus EnerPHit standard sets a standard for domestic retrofit operation and the approaches one may take towards certification.  

The challenges and technical sense behind the standard will be described as well as the caution required if internal wall insulation is used. The unit focuses on what to look out for when designing, specifying, building and commissioning EnerPHit projects.

It also covers: when EnerPHit is appropriate; common problems and challenges; what to be aware of in relation to air tightness; how to ensure the ventilation system will fit and work correctly. 

The session includes exercises for delegates to develop their understanding of the subject in a practical way.
