    Award-winning PassivHaus refurbishment of Wilmcote House

    with

    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.

    In search of construction improvement - where did it all go wrong?

    with

    Stuart Green, Professor of Construction Management,
    University of Reading

    Tuesday 11 June 2019, 6pm for 6.30pm start,

    Venue details to be confirmed



    This presentation will argue that the origins of current concerns about the construction industry can be traced back through the last four decades of 'industry improvement'. We now have an industry that is lean to the point of anorexia, because of total reliance on market mechanisms and the sector's strategic model of structural flexibility. The collapse of Carillion has exposed the industry's operating model to public scrutiny.

    But the bigger story is one of unintended adverse consequences. Each new policy initiative in favour of narrowly-defined efficiency has in fact constrained the industry's long-term development. The starkest example is provided by the industry's lack of commitment to training. Rather than presenting the existing problems as a failure to implement improvement with sufficient enthusiasm, this presentation will argue that the improvement agenda itself has become a big part of the problem.

    Stuart Green BSc MSc PhD CEng MICE FCIOB FRICS is professor of construction management at the University of Reading. He has over 30 years’ of research and consultancy experience relating to the UK construction sector and has published widely on the topic of industry improvement. Books include Making Sense of Construction Improvement (Wily-Blackwell, 2011). He is especially well known as a longstanding critic of the Egan Report (1998) and its various derivatives. He is a Guest Professor at Chongqing University in China, and a Visiting Professor at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Previous policy roles in the UK include: CIOB Innovation & research panel (2011-2016), CITB ‘English Committee’ (2015-2018) and the Commission for a Sustainable London 2012 (2007-2013). He has also participated in several advisory panels for the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), for whom he continues to be a member of the Peer Review College.
