Reducing the Performance Gap Through Fabric First
The actual 'as built' energy performance of buildings is often significantly worse than 'as designed'. Fabric First is a practical apporach to improve the energy efficiency of buildings. This seminar covers:
- An introduction to the performance gap in buildings
- Recognising the impact of the performance gap
- The causes of the performance gap
- An introduction to Fabric First, the benefits of continuous insulation and reducing the effects of thermal bridging
- An introduction to approved construction details (Accredited & Enhanced)
- The impact of thermal bridging on energy efficiency
- Improving airtightness
