NEWS: Tom Robinson Invited to talk at the UK Passivhaus Conference9th September 2014
Tom Robinson has been invited to talk at the UK Passivhaus Conference on 16th October 2014
Tom is presenting a case study talk this year on applying the Passivhouse Enerphit standard to rejuvenate a humble, Scottish Barn into and transforming it into an exciting and luxurious modern country residence. The conference is in Stevenage this year and will be a fascinating window into what is happening around the country in the Passivhaus field and for Thomas Robinson Architects it is a chance to show how technical challenges can be overcome to achieve this exacting standard. This project builds on the practice's previous success of the barn conversion in Gartocharn where we won the GIA sustainability award by acheiving AECB silver standard construction with the addition of several Passivhaus elements including MVHR and Enerphit standard of airtightness in oneof the units. The Gartocharn project can be viewed here.http://www.thomasrobinsonarchitects.co.uk/residential/projects/gartocharn-1
