How to manage moisture risks when renovating - hygrothermal assessment at its best! - London

This popular event returns to London for 2019 - book now to secure your place!

A half-day seminar from expert speaker Joseph Little.

With the best intentions in the world, by adding internal wall insulation (IWI) to an existing building to improve thermal performance, construction professionals can unwittingly create a new set of problems. If you are working on a retrofit project, considering upgrading it by adding IWI and are at all concerned about the risks of interstitial condensation then this seminar is for you.

Our expert speaker is practising architect Joseph Little who is also Assistant Head of School at Dublin School of Architecture in Technical University Dublin, a WUFI software trainer and co-author of Historic Scotland Technical Paper 15 - 'Assessing risks in insulation retrofits using hygrothermal software tools - heat and moisture transport in internally insulated walls'.

Joseph will discuss the findings of his research in the technical paper which will be of interest to architects, building fabric consultants, local authority heritage and conservation officers and to the craftworkers and their suppliers who seek to conserve, repair and retrofit traditional buildings. Homeowners who are engaged in energy efficient retrofits of their solid wall dwellings may also wish to attend.

This afternoon seminar goes hand in hand with a morning session Achieving Airtightness, Why and How: The need for joined up thinking for joined up building! Seminars can be attended together or separately.

About the speaker

Joseph Little, BArch, MSc Arch. AEES, TU Dublin

Joseph Little is Assistant Head of School at Dublin School of Architecture in Technical University Dublin (which replaced DIT on 1st January 2019). He is programme chair of MSc in Building Performance (Energy Efficiency in Design) which has a blended online mode of delivery. He graduated from the UCD School of Architecture in 1996 and from the Graduate School of the Environment at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Wales, in 2008. Joseph set-up his own practice in 2003 when he realised that his passion for low energy, environmental building design could only be realised outside of mainstream architectural practices and launched Building Life Consultancy in February 2009.

Since 2010 Joseph has taught hygrothermal risk assessment using WUFI® Pro with Fraunhofer IBP across the UK and Ireland. He is co-author of Historic Scotland Technical Paper 15 - 'Assessing risks in insulation retrofits using hygrothermal software tools - heat and moisture transport in internally insulated walls’ and 'Hygrothermal Risk Evaluation for the Retrofit of a Typical Solid-walled Dwelling' (SDAR* Journal, Vol.4, Iss.1). The hygrothermal risk assessment module of the MSc in Building Performance is available to UK building professionals (subject to qualifications) as an online CPD delivered over 5 weeks, cementing the knowledge gained in this two-day workshop.
