The third event in our sustainable project series will focus on heritage projects, particularly building projects, that are looking at retrofitting for energy efficiency and conservation. Nigel Griffiths, Director at the STBA, will give an overview of his experience working on responsible retrofit and the considerations needed when working with heritage, traditional and older buildings.
Caring for and working with traditional and historic buildings presents particular challenges, especially in the context of environmental sustainability. Modern approaches to retrofitting - particularly for energy efficiency purposes - can often have an overall negative impact on a historic building. The Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance (STBA) have extensive experience of sensitively retrofitting and working with these buildings, and created the responsible retrofit guidance wheel.
Nigel Griffiths, Director of the STBA, will share with members his experiences, knowledge and advice for retrofitting and redeveloping these buildings. He will look at the whole house approach, a way of thinking about retrofit in a manner that is holistic and risk based.
This event is strictly for members only. please register in advance.
