Description

New legislation on energy efficiency could sharply reduce the value of much of Britain’s building stock if nothing is done to upgrade and bring our built environment up to standard. The tough new standards apply to work carried out on existing structures, requiring the installation of more efficient heating and ventilation systems, and greater use of energy-saving insulation. Low carbon systems and renewable energy sources also need to be considered if the carbon footprint of our existing buildings is to be reduced.

Upgrading and enhancing the built environment brings with it numerous complexities for the architect. In particular, complying with building regulations and sustainability guidelines can create great obstacles. What impact will the introduction of the new Part L regulations have on existing buildings? How do you make existing buildings DDA compliant?

Refurbishing existing buildings: A sustainable approach is a one-day conference exploring the major issues involved in adapting and changing our built environment. A top line-up of specialist speakers actively involved in the refurbishment of existing buildings will give an overview of how designers need to approach this increasingly vital aspect of architectural work. Find out how you can strike a balance between preservation and change. Stay one step ahead by attending this unmissable event from The Architects’ Journal.
