The perfect airtight seal seminar tour

PHT member Ecological Building Systems and pro clima have announced a seminar tour that will bring airtightness insights to five locations around the UK, to celebrate BBA approval of its pro clima Intello Plus Intelligent Airtight Membrane.

Each event will involve a full day programme of technical presentations and discussion topics from pro clima, the Ecological Building Systems team and the BBA, along with practical installation demonstrations, a keynote speaker presentation, and a guest speaker who will bring their own perspective on achieving airtightness on some leading low energy and Passivhaus projects.

Guest speakers include Patrick Chester, Passivhaus Consultant at Enhabit, who will talk at the London event about on-site airtightness experiences, Graham Drummond, Director of Passivhaus Associates, discussing his home, "Snug Within", in Glasgow, and Dr Sarah Price from The Design Büro speaking about Wilmcote House at the Studio, Birmingham. Paul McAllister, Chairman of the Passive House Association of Ireland (PHAI) will be the keynote speaker in Belfast.

The purpose of the seminars is to demonstrate the increased thermal performance and year-round building comfort that can be achieved by improving air tightness across both residential and commercial buildings, in new builds and retrofits, and we look forward to presenting a compelling case to delegates and answering any questions they may have to aid best practice specification and installation. The opening presentation at each seminar, from the BBA Technical Excellence Team’s senior scientist, Jon Denyer, will outline why respected standards and the testing they involve are so critical in the built environment sector.
