On Friday 24th November Woodhead Education, ERA and The University of Nottingham would like to invite you to a seminar focused on delivering a commercial Passivhaus project.

RAD building: The University of Nottingham The Research Acceleration and Demonstration (RAD) building 

The Research Acceleration and Demonstration (RAD) building is a brand new £5.4m research facility for the University of Nottingham. It will be one of the most energy efficient research facilities in the UK as it will combine the rigorous sustainability standards of BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) with the principles of the German Passivhaus system. Passivhaus is based on the creation of a building with excellent insulation and a high level of airtightness, in which air quality is maintained via a whole building mechanical ventilation system.

The seminar will give a behind the scenes insight into the complexities associated with combining the two sustainability standards. Architects, Lewis & Hickey, Passivhaus Consultants, Etude, Client, The University of Nottingham and Contractors, Woodhead Education will deliver the seminar.

As part of the University’s work with the Innovate UK funded Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) initiative, the RAD building will help provide more space and facilities for pioneering research projects.



The event is free to attend but booking is essential, and spaces are limited. Please use the online booking form.
