Passivhaus and Low Carbon Building: Delivering 2016 Standards

Date: 23 April 2015 Time: 09.30 - 14.00
Location: Innovation Birmingham, Faraday Wharf, Holt Street, Birmingham B7 4BB Cost: £50, Free for public sector professionals

In 2006 the Government committed that by 2016 all new homes, and by 2019, all new non-domestic buildings would be ‘zero carbon’ in terms of their operating costs. Since then there have been many changes but the commitment and challenge remains for the deep retrofit of existing buildings.

Building upon last year’s successful Encraft Building Physics Conference, this event aims to prepare delegates to meet the 2016 zero carbon standards by:

  • Understanding the most effective approach to deliver the standards for new domestic and non-domestic ‘zero carbon’ buildings and the challenge of existing stock
  • Making the business case add up
  • Ensuring the roles of planning, client, architect, contractor and technical quality assurance work together to deliver the outcomes you want.

The event is aimed at decision-makers and technical experts involved in housing and building management such as planners, housing managers, asset managers, architects, and contractors.

A provisional agenda for the event is available to view here.



The event is free to the public sector and £50 to all others.
