Passivhaus lessons learned explaining the basics of Passivhaus including issues around noise

A presentation by Matt Bridgestock, followed by an opportunity for Q&A and informal chat.

Funding requirements, Scottish Government strategy, Scottish Building Regulations and best practice are moving the construction industry towards all electric, Passivhaus standard building model. Matt will look at what Passivhaus offers, what it means for construction and offer lessons learnt from completed projects. For this seminar, he will try to draw out the areas where acoustics have been impacted, either positively or negatively and discuss how we can adapt to ensure high performance buildings.
