The Case for Passivhaus

Date: 10 May 2016 Time: 12.30 - 17.00
Location: The Council House - Victoria Square Birmingham B1 1BB Cost: Free to attend, booking essential

Passivhaus is now recognised as the world’s leading standard on low energy building. By prioritising fabric it delivers buildings that are more than 90% energy efficient than current UK building regulations. Many European countries have this standard as their minimum requirements and many exciting examples are now coming to the forefront within the UK industry too. 

Acivico Passivhaus Symposium

In the current climate where council’s resources are stretched and ever increasing demands are made on its services – high buildings operational costs can be an unwanted liability in the long run.  As Passivhaus gains more popularity, capital costs are coming down and the evidence that the model is able to deliver what it promises mounts, allowing the Council and other organisations to reduce carbon emissions while saving on operational costs.

This learning symposium is being convened by Acivico designer and Passivhaus expert Nidhi Shah and will be hosted by Don Ward, Chief Executive of Construction Excellence.
