The future of the low carbon campus

How do we create cleaner, healthier campuses and how do approaches like Passivhaus and retrofit help us achieve this?


22 Sep


12:30 - 13:30


Online session

Matt Tarling, Director at Stride Treglown and Martin Boddy, Pro Vice Chancellor of the University of the West of England, will provide a brief introduction to UWE’s Low Carbon Residences project – one of the world’s largest Passivhaus projects of its type, before taking a 10,000ft view on the topic of the future campus.

Matt and Martin will be joined by Oliver Fuller, Sustainability Consultant at Qoda Consulting and Tomas Jemiol, Project Architect and Certified Passivhaus Designer.

Expect discussions on the challenges of delivering net zero buildings and the potential for the Passivhaus approach to be extended to retrofit and refurbishment projects.

Questions from the audience will be encouraged at the end of the session.
