Award-winning PassivHaus refurbishment of Wilmcote House
James Traynor, Managing Director, ECD Architects
Tuesday 14 May 2019, 6pm for 6.30pm start,
ALUK Studio, 5-11 Worship Street, London EC2A 2BH
Wilmcote House is the largest project in the UK targeting the Passivhaus EnerPHit standard. The regeneration of Wilmcote House addressed resident issues of fuel poverty by reducing energy bills from up to £2,000 to nearer £200 per year. This has dramatically reduced Carbon Emissions and improved the quality of life for residents.
Designed to the stringent Passivhaus EnerPHit standard, the homes were super-insulated and extended, the walkways were enclosed, and new entrances (and homes) were provided to improve health and wellbeing.
Collaborating with the Universities of Southampton and LSE to measure the impact of the works on the residents and the actual performance of the building has provided a huge wealth of data which we hope will result in more retrofit projects in the future.
Wilmcote House has become a reference for housing providers and the construction industry for high quality large-scale refurbishment both nationally and internationally and above all in creating a desirable place to live.
The presenter for this event is James Traynor, Managing Director of ECD Architects. He is a Certified Passivhaus Designer with over 15 years’ experience in low-energy design. James obtained an MSc in Advanced Energy & Environmental Studies at the Centre for Alternative Technology and is a graduate of the University of Liverpool school of Architecture. He is author of the forthcoming book: EnerPHit – A Step by Step Guide to Low Energy Retrofit being published by RIBA.
James also has a particular interest in Building Physics and Post-Occupancy Evaluation as a means of improving building handover issues and addressing the gap between predicted and actual performance.
