Event Description

A half-day seminar outlining current research, emerging best practice and case studies in the field of upgrading traditional and historic buildings.

  • How do we protect our historic buildings but make them fit for the future?
  • Is it possible to add wall insulation without detriment to the existing building fabric?
  • What are the risks for mass-scale domestic external wall insulation projects?

Addressing energy efficiency is fast becoming one of the most pressing issues in older, traditionally-constructed buildings, particularly with the advent of finance streams such as Green Deal, ECO and the forthcoming RHI. However, retaining character and significance can be at odds with achieving improved thermal efficiency, and there is a great deal of controversy around the risks and benefits of different technical solutions.
