Ecological Building Systems is to return to The Building Centre in London on Thursday 18th October to host a full day air tightness seminar in partnership with intelligent membrane specialist, pro clima, and the BBA.
Featuring an array of guest speakers, including Simon Corbey, associate director at The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products (ASBP), the seminar follows a successful CLT Masterclass held by the specialist supplier of sustainable building products at The Building Centre last year.
Simon Corbey will be the facilitator and keynote speaker at the event and will also chair a round table, examining the core themes of optimising energy efficiency through the building fabric specification, avoiding the risk of moisture-related structural damage and designing a healthier built environment.
The day will also include a number of CPD presentations around varied aspects of air tightness moisture control and improving the indoor environment, along with a focus on the value of product testing and a number of practical product demonstrations.
Project Manager & Passivhaus Consultant of London based Enhabit, will also be sharing his experiences on their recent Passivhaus recent projects The event will carry six structured CPD points for all delegates who attend for the full day.
Explains Niall Crosson, group technical manager at Ecological Building Systems and one of the presenters at the event. “The pro clima intelligent airtightness membranes that we distribute in the UK provide an industry-leading approach to delivering high standards of air tightness, without the risk of moisture being trapped in the structure.
“After extensive testing, pro clima Intello Plus has now been BBA approved and we decided to celebrate by teaming up with pro clima and the BBA to host this series of events, which will give architects, consultants and construction sector professionals an in depth understanding of the role of air tightness and moisture control in developing a better built environment, outlining how that can be achieved in practice.”
Niall adds: “Air tightness is a core element of Passivhaus construction and our philosophy is that the exacting standards of strict design practice can be applied to any project through and informed approach to specification, ensuring better thermal performance and building comfort.
“With its excellent location and facilities, The Building Centre provides the ideal location to spread that message and we are looking forward to meeting delegates from across the architectural, construction, planning, building control, surveying and Passivhaus professions on the day.”
Niall and Simon will be joined by John Denyer from the BBA and Michael Foerster from pro clima on the speaker line up at the London event. The seminar at The Building Centre is part of a five date tour, which will also take in
