Join speakers from IES, RIBA, MESH Energy and HTA on Thursday 24th March at 10am GMT to learn why performance evaluation by Architects and Urban Planners at pre-design stages is absolutely vital to achieving net-zero buildings.
With inspiring keynotes from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), this webinar will discuss the RIBA 2030 Challenge, its Sustainable Outcomes Guide and the role Building Performance Evaluation has in meeting them. As well as the implications and opportunities for architects and urban designers, and highlights from recently developed tools from IES specifically designed to meet these challenges.
As pressure mounts on the Race to Zero, architectural practices are increasingly signing up to initiatives such as RIBA’s 2030 Challenge. However, to achieve the performance targets this sets across operational energy use, water use and embodied carbon will require a step change in traditional practices.
To achieve RIBA’s sustainable outcomes, a design approach that embeds building performance evaluation is recommended. By providing feedback at every stage of the building lifecycle, right through to post-occupancy, this approach can help resolve the well-known performance gap between design intent and in-use performance to deliver real and lasting reductions in carbon emissions.
The recent changes to UK building regulations enforce this message with performance metric measuring being introduced or tightened across all of the standards. Architects and governing bodies are now recognising that if we are serious in delivering a step change in sustainability, we cannot continue to allow the use of predicted outcomes as the absolute measure of project success. To maintain core control over critical design decisions, and help our buildings become part of a zero carbon future Architects must step up to the performance challenge.
