Passive house in the spotlight at Ecobuild
Passive house will be represented stronger than ever at this year’s Ecobuild on 4 to 6 March, with a series of events throughout the exhibition focused on the world’s leading ultra low energy building standard. Passive House Plus will also be at this year’s exhibition — come find us at stand S800.
Meanwhile the Passivhaus Trust has compiled a list of relevant events and published them on its website at passivhaustrust.org.uk.
These include sessions on how to scale up passive house to multiunit projects and maintain quality, and designing for quality and comfort in passive buildings. There will also be sessions on delivering retrofit at scale and standardised passive house school design.
Saint-Gobain will run a series of passive house seminars at its stand, N750. The Passivhaus Trust will also launch the 2014 UK Passivhaus Awards at Ecobuild, at 16.30 on Wednesday 5 March at stand S510/11, hosted by Advantage Austria.
The trust is also involved with the Regeneration Film Festival 2014, an open-entry filmmaking competition at Ecobuild for all those involved with the design, use and development of a sustainable built environment.
Ecobuild takes place from 4 to 6 March at the Excel Centre in London.
