Using case studies and local project examples, Gary Wilburn, Managing Director at EP Projects Limited will share first-hand experiences to help de-mystify the challenge of retrofitting both domestic and commercial buildings in the UK. With reference to fabric first refurbishment techniques and utilising Building Physics to inform the design process the aim is to reduce the whole-life energy consumption of buildings at source. This includes application and integration of hybrid renewable energy systems and how this can be achieved in both cost-effective and practical ways. Reference to AECB Building Standard and Certified Passivhaus processes to achieve these goals will be discussed and the need to reskill, up-skill and inspire the next generation of construction professionals to deliver such a demanding and exciting step change in how we Retrofit the UK’s existing buildings.
