Designing out the risks of overheating – 6 March, 10:30-11:40, Buildings Hub
The summer of 2018 was one of the hottest on record, and temperatures are set to rise, especially in cities. Many factors contribute to overheating risk in new or refurbished buildings including: high proportions of glazing; thermally insulating and single-aspect designs; community heating systems; and inadequate ventilation strategies. The health and wellbeing impacts of overheating can be significant, especially for vulnerable residents. This session will explore the latest thinking and best practice approaches.
