Get Started
1: Agar Grove

By the end of this module you will be able to understand:

  1. The different large scale and complex building typologies and sectors that have that have
    adopted the Passivhaus standard.
  2. The benefits of the Certification process and the need for iterative engagement with
    Certifiers.
  3. Lessons learned and the influence of complexity on design and buildability.
  4. How fire, airtightness and glazing strategies may differ on large‐scale developments.
  5. Different construction techniques and the advantages of repeatable details and sequencing.
  6. Different MEP Strategies, including space heating, hot water, and ventilation strategies for a large scale multiresidential development
  7. Impact of fire‐related insurance requirements and subcontractor design elements
  8. How early engagement with subcontractors and supply chain can facilitate delivery.
  9. Site evidencing and quality control measures.
2: Solid wall retrofit

By the end of this module you will be able to understand:

  1. How EnerPHit compares to other standards such as AECB and LETI.
  2. The key design and delivery fundamentals of a whole house retrofit, including airtightness and thermal bridge and ventilation strategies.
  3. The impact of moisture in buildings and the strategies to mitigate the risk. Different types of moisture – rising damp, rain driven and interstitial.
  4. The criteria informing the choice of internal or external wall insulation systems.
  5. How to detail key junctions with internal wall insulation on heritage and listed buildings to mitigate thermal bridging, air leakage and manage moisture.
  6. How window apertures are critical in relation to heritage, heat loss and thermal bridging and how they should be effectively detailed.
3: Cavity wall

By the end of this module you will be able to understand:

  1. Practicality, opportunity and budget of various domestic retrofit measures
  2. Ingredients of successful retrofit – energy conservation/ energy efficiency/ renewable energy
  3. Advantages of insulating on the outside of cavity walls with external wall insulation – lower risk of condensation/ lower risk of thermal bridges
  4. Building tight: Application of insulation, what type, thermal bridges, location, and need to ventilate right. The critical importance of having a robust and effective ventilation strategy.
  5. High risk cavity walls and Moisture sources in cavity wall: rising damp, rain, leaks, indoor activities
  6. Why cavity walls are challenging to treat – form factor/ less airtight/ less desire to add insulation
  7. Optimisation of heating options following fabric improvement and consideration of renewables
4: Step by step retrofit

By the end of this module you will be able to understand:

  1. Step by step retrofit and PAS 2035 – does not suggest specific performance standards
  2. Practical lesson from of step by step retrofit on a mid-terrace property
  3. Certification requirements for step-by-step EnerPHit and impact on heating demand and IAQ
  4. How moisture, dust and mess should be managed through the retrofit steps
5: Multi residential retrofit

By the end of this module you will be able to understand:

  1. Making the case for and applying Passivhaus on large multi-residential domestic and non-domestic projects.
  2. Bringing our buildings in line with international climate goals – streamlining - retrofits simpler, faster and cheaper including prefabrication - reduction of retrofit times and costs. Lock in energy performance and quality through EnerPHit
  3. Streamlining, prefabrication - reduction of retrofit times and costs
  4. Barriers to high quality deep retrofit.
  5. Advantages of large scale in relation to form factor
  6. Further positive social impacts of EnerPHit on occupant health and welfare and reduction of fuel poverty.
  7. EnerPHit and net zero. Future proof
  8. Challenges of multi residential retrofit Different tenures within same building, projections such as balconies, windows, integration of MVHR
6: Non domestic retrofit

6: Non domestic retrofit

By the end of this module you will be able to understand:

  1. Applying Passivhaus on large multi-residential domestic and non-domestic projects.
  2. Different typologies
  3. Relationship with net zero operational carbon through a fabric first strategy
  4. Defining the airtightness layer and extent of thermal envelope
  5. Services location to optimise performance
