Event Description

Are you looking for a course that provides:

    Answers to cutting edge topics, delivered by independent experts?
    In depth analysis of specific technical issues?
    Clear and concise information presented without using jargon or clichés?

Then this course is for you!

The Green Register's Sustainable Building Masterclasses one-day courses provide an ideal opportunity to learn about subjects that are relevant to your profession and skills at an advanced level. This event will comprise of four 90 minute sessions:

1. Plumbing for Architects Part 1 - Cath Hassell, ech2o
One of your clients wants solar thermal and asks whether it works with a combi boiler whilst another wants “an enhanced bathing experience” and wonders if a pumped shower or an electric shower is more sustainable. A client in a small office needs to upgrade their gas boiler and wants to know whether they should install a heat pump instead of a condensing boiler. Architects are increasingly required to ensure the most sustainable design choices for their clients, and to successfully integrate new technology into existing plumbing systems. This CPD is designed to answer such queries and to enable architects to work more effectively with plumbers and M&E engineers on smaller projects.

Cath will present an overview of the main types of plumbing and heating systems in domestic and small commercial situations, and will explain how to successfully integrate the core sustainable solutions into conventional plumbing systems using relevant case studies and interactive group work. Part 1 covers the main types of cold water, hot water and heating systems likely to be encountered. It also looks at sustainable plumbing materials.

2. Residential Retrofit: Case Studies - Marion Baeli - Paul Davis & Partners
Marion Baeli was the architect of the 1st PassivHaus certified residential retrofit in the UK – one of the Retrofit for the Future programme project. This experience led her to author an RIBA publication which presents 20 domestic retrofit case studies in depth. During this session she will present 4 case studies with details, costs, strategies and post occupancy data..

3. Plumbing for Architects Part 2 - Cath Hassell, ech2o
Cath will present an overview of the main types of plumbing and heating systems in domestic and small commercial situations, and will explain how to successfully integrate the core sustainable solutions into conventional plumbing systems using relevant case studies and interactive group work.

Part 2 presents a series of likely scenarios where sustainable upgrades are required. Delegates decide if it is possible to incorporate the suggested solutions into the existing plumbing set up or whether (and which) changes will be required.

4. Implementing sustainable water solutions into a design - Cath Hassell, ech2o
This workshop shows the step by step process to redesign a dwelling to really address sustainable water rather than just a tick box exercise. It includes designing for sustainable hot water, green roofs, irrigation and pool choice as well as which level of the CSH to meet and whether rainwater or greywater is required.

Please note topics and speakers may be liable to change.

What do the delegates say?

    “Excellent sessions – relates to work I’m doing at the moment”
    “Good actual examples – drawings/photos, products that could be employed”
    “Very good case study examples – Eco-retrofit across ages gave very good practical information”

“Both the SBS course and SBS Masterclasses were very well organised and provided good, current and applicable information. I have certainly broadened my knowledge in the area of sustainable design and specification which will filter through to all the projects than run through this practice from now on.”
David Callin, Cowan Architects
