Overheating: designing buildings in a warmer climate, dos and don'ts Workshop
Held in central London
Central London event to be held at:
The Clove Building
4 Maguire Street
London SE1 2NQ
Welcome to this exciting live workshop, with a summer-appropriate topic!
In an increasingly warming climate, we are realising more and more the importance of designing our buildings with particular attention to summer conditions and future-proofing.
While the industry has been focusing for decades on isolating from cold winter conditions, we come to this stage with a gap in knowledge and regulations on overheating.
For a topic so relevant and urgent, the most important step to take is raising awareness and inclusion of these considerations as early as possible in building designs.
How do we future-proof buildings for a more comfortable and cool internal environment on hot days?
Your expert speaker will guide us through this incredibly important topic, touching on:
- Trends and projections of the warming climate
- Barriers and knowledge gaps on overheating
- How the building fabric needs to adapt to change in temperatures
- Strategy for free cooling and mechanical cooling systems in buildings
- What actions we can take for existing buildings now
- How to overcome design and regulations gaps
- Tools and references available.
