Getting to Zero, Energy Retrofits, Mitigation, and LCA at Heritage Places


On September 29, 2021 Drew Hauser and David Riley joined a panel discussion entitled Getting to Zero Energy Retrofits, Mitigation, and LCA at Heritage Places. The session, part of the National Trust Annual Conference, explored how the race to net zero is heating up and heritage buildings are being pressed to prove their worth. This in-depth technical session took conference participants inside a range of cutting-edge heritage projects to examine energy modelling tools, balance heritage fabric and energy savings, deploy LCA calculators to demonstrate value to clients, and overcome heritage masonry retrofit challenges.
