2024 Large and Complex Passivhaus Masterclass

2022 Large and Complex Passivhaus Masterclass

Larger UK Passivhaus projects are emerging with increasing scales that bring new challenges. Continuing the success of our 2022 series, our online Passivhaus Large & Complex Masterclass series covers topics in demand! How do you airtest a high-rise block? What MVHR systems work best for 100+ home developments or bespoke non-domestic settings?

We have planned new in-depth case studies, as well as topic-focused sessions. Learn from expert practitioners working in the field. Enrich your practical and technical knowledge for your large-scale Passivhaus projects.

Large Buildings & Ventilation 2  1.5hr 5 Topics | 1 Quiz Buy to unlock

Kick off the 2024 series with insights into design challenges for super-sized Passivhaus from PHT Patron and WARM experts. Learn essential dos and don’ts for large projects, including ventilating big buildings and incorporating strategies into the Passivhaus Planning Package (PHPP). Discover whether duct lengths matter and the pros and cons of centralised versus decentralised systems. Join a live session with Sally Godber and Liam McDonagh-Greaves of WARM for expert advice on designing and ventilating large Passivhaus buildings.

Air tightness & air testing of large multi-residential blocks  2  1.5hr 6 Topics | 1 Quiz Buy to unlock

Air tightness design and air testing of large multi-residential blocks presents a number of design and practical challenges, especially in locations where planning requirements require building emission rates to improve upon Part L, such as within the Greater London Authority region. Issues we will cover are: defining the thermal envelope, choosing compartments for pressure testing, co-pressurisation tests, air tightness requirements for individual dwellings, interim testing and final testing including tall buildings. If these aspects are not carefully planned out before construction, testing and air tightness costs can spiral.

Thermal Bridging 2  1.5hr 1 Quiz Buy to unlock

Thermal bridging contributes significant heat loss which results in uncertainty during the design development of concrete frame buildings. At the same time thermal bridge modelling can become a high cost design activity, with frequent update requirements. We will explore strategies for risk mitigation at early stage design, share λ- and ψ-values we have calculated for different situations and present some general observations from our 2D and 3D thermal bridge modelling. We will also cover technical design, construction quality and provide a certifier’s perspective.
