Times: 12.30 -14.00 [GMT+1 / BST] (12:00 for lunch)


This webinar will explore the application of the Passive House standard which has been implemented in many new build properties in central Europe, particularly Germany and Austria and which has also explored the possibility of applying such standard to the retrofit and upgrading of buildings.

The feasibility study explored retrofit possibilities using the standard and how best it would integrate into a hard to treat property selected as the case study. The dwelling is located in the village of Cellardyke in Fife, Scotland. It‘s a traditional typical coastal village home which has had some renovations and attachments to it that haven’t been all to its favour without addressing  any ecological and energy efficiency alternatives.

Retrofitting using the Passive House Standard has been applied to some dwellings in mainland Europe in recent years but more recently to some Victorian terraced homes in England. These were explored and cited throughout the study giving an insight into what is being done recently and how well it fits the case study in question.

The report will look into the guidelines and limitations that the passive house standard has to offer to the retrofit of buildings while also looking at conclusions over whether this standard is effective and replicable for the retrofit of Scottish traditional housing.
