Passivhaus in a Working Laboratory
7 Jun 18
1:30pm to 4:00pm
East of England and Midlands
RAD Building, University of Nottingham, Jubilee Campus, Nottingham, NG7 2TU
University of Nottingham
This is a past event, you can no longer book tickets.
This information event will use the Research Acceleration and Demonstration (RAD) Building at the University of Nottingham to demonstrate the effective delivery of a successful Passivhaus project. Featuring presentations from the architects, the construction company and end users. The event will also give attendees an opportunity to find out more about support they can access and a chance to explore this unique building.
The 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.
