Passivhaus Series: 2. Construction for Passivhaus - Manchester

Event two of a new series of four half-day Passivhaus events held in conjunction with WARM and Sheppard Robson.

The Green Register, WARM and Sheppard Robson are pleased to be working together to provide four half-day technical sessions in Manchester on the Passivhaus principles.

Although the full Passivhaus training is a fantastic way to gain an in depth understanding of all aspects of Passivhaus design, some construction professionals may not have the time or resources to be able to attend the typical Passivhaus two week course.

These afternoon sessions offer insight into all the main principles i.e. what makes a good low energy, comfortable building based on the Passivhaus standard. The training is ideal for architects and other design professionals as the focus in these courses is on design principles.

Each of the four sessions will be run by experts in the field who are actually successfully designing/ building Passivhaus in UK. Amongst others, Bill Butcher, Alan Clarke, Sally Godber, Nick Grant, Eric Parks, Marine Sanchez, Mark Siddall; and Passivhaus Certifiers Will South, Mike Roe and Peter Warm. Assisted by Passivhaus Designers Tom Dollard and Lucy Pedler.

Event Two: Construction for Passivhaus, Bill Butcher

Bill will be running a Details workshop to investigate Passivhaus construction junctions and material samples. There will also be an airtightness exercise for all delegates to participate in.
