The Good Homes Alliance are running a project to develop guidance for local authorities on how to assess and mitigate overheating risk in new residential development (https://goodhomes.org.uk/research/early-stage-overheating-guidance). Following background research and surveys with local authorities and designers, the project is now in its final stages, aiming for completion in early March.
Our research consultants Susie Diamond (Inkling LLP) and Julie Godefroy (Julie Godefroy Sustainability Ltd) have developed a pilot tool and guidance, and will be holding a workshop to test it on Monday 25th February, 2-5pm at the Arnolfini in Bristol (https://www.arnolfini.org.uk).
The workshop will be an opportunity to hear about the project, provide feedback on the guidance, and test it against projects you know – whether they are currently in the early design stages, or completed projects. The audience will be a mix of designers and professionals in local authorities.
Do feel free to let us know if you would like more information and to suggest colleagues who would be interested.
