The Principles of Thermal Bridging

Leeds Beckett University, Broadcasting Place, Leeds LS2 9EN

 18 November 2016

13:15 – 17:00

 Join us for a new half-day seminar which presents an overview of the underlying principles of thermal bridging.

Trainer Matthew Brooke-Peat of architectural technology practice Studio A Consulting Limited will identify different types of thermal bridge and illustrate the effect on building performance, as well as explaining and presenting:

  • the requirements of Building Regulations Part L that relate to thermal bridging
  • an overview of the contrasting approach to the treatment of thermal bridging under Passivhaus
  • the use of detail patterns from catalogues of standard solutions

The seminar will introduce thermal modelling of bespoke construction details and offer guidance on how to read and effectively utilise thermal bridging calculations to improve detailing.

Following on from Matthew, a break out session from Tom Dollard of Pollard Thomas Edwards will ask delegates to sketch over a number of part L accredited details, and improve the details for thermal performance. Best practice guidance will be examined.

To finish up, Tom will present the Zero Carbon Hub Builders Book, and pick out key details and issues relevant for delivering thermal performance.

Both trainers are keen to answer queries you may have, with two Q&A sessions forming part of this seminar.

Costs: Green Register members £65 / Non-members £99
