The Green Register event - Checking the Pulse: Passivhaus in Practice
A new half day live, interactive, virtual event with The Green Register and a fantastic line-up of speakers including Ecological's Group Technical Manager, Niall Crosson talking about his own home Passivhaus project.
This informative event will chart the progress of Passivhaus in the UK and Ireland to where it is now and the importance of this building standard as an achievable, affordable solution that can make a huge contribution to reducing the impact construction on the environment.
Following a session focussing on ventilation systems and the positive impact on reducing the risk of airborne virus transmission, there will be four case studies illustrating how the Passivhaus standard has been applied across varying build types including the challenges the design teams came up against and how these were overcome.
