Event Description

Emerging evidence and research study results confirm that overheating in residential properties is becoming more noticeable. With average temperatures increasing globally and a strong drive for highly energy efficient new and retrofit residential projects, overheating can pose a serious risk moving forward. People are vulnerable to extreme temperatures and exposure to high temperatures for prolonged periods of time should be avoided. But what qualifies as higher temperatures and what is the duration of exposure that can be considered as significant?

Principal consultant Tassos Kougionis of BSRIA Sustainable Construction Group will be offering an informed update on overheating in residential properties. After an introduction to the essential issues surrounding overheating, Tassos will outline the main reasons for its occurrence and the challenges construction professionals face when tackling the problem.

Tassos will also talk about:

  • Common definitions used and limitations
  • SAP and assessment tools – Predicting Overheating
  • Regulations, policies and good practise
  • Designing for the future, addressing resilience

Paul Ciniglio, interim head of Assets and Sustainability at First Wessex Housing Association will then present some case studies to illustrate where overheating has occurred in new homes and how a better understanding of the issues has lead to remedial work to improve occupant comfort.
