Event Description

This half day session introduces the principles behind the Passivhaus standard (Thermal Comfort!) and the differences from normal construction so that everyone on the design team can understand the process.

Some attention as to the requirements for all seasons comfort are also discussed: Summer overheating can be dealt with by design if there is an understanding of the processes: seasonal shading, natural and/or mechanical ventilation, together with care over uncontrolled internal heat loads can deal with most problems without recourse to cooling in this climate. Minimizing Summer overheating is a core part of the Passivhaus target. 

Finally we take a look at the support and resources available in the UK, from Passipedia.org to Passivhaus designers and building certifiers working in the UK.
