The programme will examine the implications that Passivhaus has on our designs from an architectural and engineering perspective. It will be chaired by Robin Baker, architect and Chair of SEDA and will feature several presenters covering various issues including:

Thomas Froehlich the Scottish Passivhaus Centre outlining what PH certification involves;

David Tibbs, from Oliver and Robb Architects who will be talking about meeting Ph standards in design in their certified Passivhaus in Pittenweem - the first passivehouse for affordable rent;

Chris Morgan, architect and founder of Locate Architects and certified passivhaus designer will talk about his proposed Passivhaus designs;

Ross Barrett, of HLM Architects, project architect for their recently completed houses on site at Scotland's Housing Expo in August will be presenting a case study of these 3 houses and their application to the mass market;

Howard Liddell, architect from Gaia Architects, Edinburgh will present information on the experience gained in Europe.

There will also be buzz groups throughout the afternoon to discuss issues raised in each session along with a final question and discussion session where drinks and nibbles will be provided.

Places are limited to 20 allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.

To cover the costs, a fee of £10 for SEDA members and £15 for non-members is being charged. This is payable in advance in order to ensure your place and to ensure that people are not turned away unneccesarily.
