Low Impact Buildings Lectures | Thurs 27 Sept | Linenhall Library

The Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) and Invest NI are collaborating to promote the Technology Strategy Board’s (TSB) Low Impact Buildings Programme. There will be two free lectures on Thursday 27th September in the Linenhall Library, Belfast.

The lectures will demonstrate how effective the latest eco-technologies are proving to be in practice, how the TSB’s development funding works and how architects, clients and businesses here can benefit.

Low Impact Domestic Buildings Lunchtime Lecture 1-2pm
The Retrofitting for the Future initiative has funded 100 different domestic refurbishments from across the UK. These projects were expected to deliver an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions. Have they delivered? If so, how? The lecture will go on to cover the AIMC4 project, which delivered Code 4 housing with building fabric-led innovations. Anyone working in housing, the Green Deal or Code for Sustainable Homes should attend.

Non-Domestic Retrofit Afternoon Lecture and SBRI Funding Workshop 2.30-3.30pm
This lecture will feature previous retrofitting projects from the Technology Strategy Board, such as the Energy Efficient Whitehall Offices. Second tranche funding for TSB’s £10m Non-Domestic Innovative Refurbishment Programme is due to open for applications in mid-October. Could this funding make your innovative ref-fit projects viable? Find out details about the successful first tranche projects and how Northern Ireland’s projects could benefit this time around.

Advice will be given at both events on how architects and other professionals can become assessors and evaluators for the TSB.
