RGU presents at BUILD IT Conference in Aberdeen
In these highly challenging times, communicating, innovating and working digitally are part of the deal as we adapt. Trying new things and exchanging results remains a crucial aspect when keeping up the Renovation Wave momentum. Backed by industry bodies, as well as a broad spectrum of companies working in the field, Build It encourages open, honest and thoughtful communication surrounding important topics affecting the industry, providing an important platform and ensuring that all stakeholders benefit from results.
RGU present Whole House Retrofit
Stronghouse colleague Dr Amar Bennadji, a senior lecturer at the Scott Sutherland School, RGU took the online stage and was joined by Matthew Clubb, a certified retrofit coordinator. With more than 200 participants joining the event, it was a valuable opportunity to highlight some of the key facts and figures regarding the need to retrofit UK buildings on a mass scale and to present the new Whole House Retrofit standard, PAS2035.
Statistics & typologies
As Amar reported: “It was great to join the impressive lineup and participate in this exchange with construction industry stakeholders. Assisted by Mohammed Seddiki in preparing for this, we got to share some of the knowledge, expertise and innovations we've witnessed so far during the course of the Stronghouse project. This presentation also covered a statistical overview of the CO2 emissions in the UK, with a particular focus on the housing sector.” The speakers also analyzed the UK housing typologies and the potential of each category in cutting its CO2 emission through a step-by-step retrofitting approach.
"Over the years, RGU's Scott Sutherland School has been a keen participant and contributor at the Built It event. Although enthousiastic about the digital opportunities, we hope face to face meetings and 'live' interaction with the audience returns soon," Amar concludes.
We can only concur with that. As the world gradually re-opens, we look forward to our first physical Stronghouse Partner Meeting, now planned for Spring 2022.
