High Rise Retrofit Seminars for GreenSky Thinking 2014

April 3, 2014

 

On Monday 28 April, ECD Architects will be hosting a seminar event ‘Mapping a changing sustainable approach to high rise retrofit, 1989 – 2014’ as part of GreenSky Thinking Week.

We will be holding this seminar as two sessions within our London office:

•    Session 1: 10 am to 12 pm
•    Session 2: 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm

GreenSky Thinking is a week long, London-wide events programme for built environment and property professionals highlighting innovative thinking and practice on how we ‘design in’ sustainability for London. The programme is managed by Open-City, London’s leading architecture education organisation.

Our seminar reviews ECD’s 25 years of experience refurbishing residential towers. Commencing with Barley Mow (one of the first UK estates to be over-clad with EWI), we will review a variety of projects including Edward Woods (the subject of the `High Rise Hope’ report by London School of Economics). Most importantly, the seminar will conclude with the findings from the cost/benefit analysis undertaken with the Keegans QS team of the retrofit of Wilmcote House to the EnerPHit Standard.
