REHAU is now taking bookings for its series of Passivhaus seminars for architects, specifiers, clients and developers, taking place at The Crystal in London Docklands on Thursday 5th May.
Passivhaus Certified Designers Roger Burton will deliver a keynote presentation on The Principles of Passivhaus Design at the event.
In addition, REHAU’s expert team will discuss the design and specification of windows, doors and curtain walling for Passivhaus buildings and the associated ventilation required through ground-air heat exchangers.
Those who attend the seminar will also have a free tour of the iconic Wilkinson and Eyre designed Crystal Building, one of the world’s most sustainable buildings. Delegates will have the opportunity to see the Siemens ‘Future of Cities’ exhibition and look at the REHAU chilled ceiling which features as part of the design.
Tony Harbour, Senior Commercial Manager at The REHAU Hub in London commented: “This is the latest stage in REHAU’s campaign to help plug the knowledge gap which we know exists in relation to Passivhaus design. We are seeing a really encouraging surge in interest around our Passivhaus certified fenestration and ventilation solutions, but also lots of requests for information and advice from specifiers.
We’re keen to see Passivhaus become a mainstream option in the UK in the same way as it is in Germany and many other parts of Europe where REHAU operates, so we’re investing in a programme of events at stand out locations around the UK which allow for knowledge and best practice to be shared.”
