SPAB, HE, Suffolk Preservation Society – Energy Efficiency and Old Buildings
22 November - 09:30 - 17:00£140
The Suffolk Preservation Society has partnered with Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings and Historic England to provide a one-day event on energy efficiency and retrofitting old, traditional and listed buildings.
Join us to learn how to make a home – whether it is medieval and timber-framed, Georgian, Victorian or Edwardian, detached or terrace – energy efficient and low carbon without devaluing the future sustainability or character of the building. The course will explain how to avoid potential problems and will consider a holistic approach to retrofitting, while presenting a background to the latest building science with practical advice and examples of best practice.
The day will be relevant to owners of period properties, professionals who advise on improving energy efficiency of historic buildings, and students who want to learn more about this growing area of interest. With opportunities to hear from Historic England on the latest policy position and ask questions throughout the course, the event is also an excellent chance to meet and learn from other owners who may be facing similar challenges.
