CPD LECTURE SERIES 2019/2020: Fundamentals of energy renovation for traditional buildings
In collaboration with the Heritage Council, we developed a 5 day lecture series with funding from the SEAI.The lecture series was open to qualified building professionals and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits were provided by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and Engineers Ireland (EI). The lecture series was also endorsed by the Society of Chartered Surveyors (SCSI).
Lectures were delivered by leading professionals from Ireland, the UK and Europe, giving attendees access to the latest research, case studies and best practice guidance. Attendees were supported by an online resource with suggested readings, speaker presentations and practice quizzes to test knowledge and comprehension.
Some of the topics covered were:
Historic Buildings and Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaptation
Introduction to Traditional Buildings and Conservation Principles
Thermal Efficiency and Moisture Management
Upgrading Building Services and Integrating Renewable Energy Sources
This lecture series is currently under review and is planned to be rerun in 2021.
