Building an EcoHome – Two approaches
Thursday 10 September, 7.00 pm
St Johns Ambulance Hall,
Rax Lane, Bridport DT6 3JJ
John Bol, a partner in
b3 Architecture Ltd, will give
a talk on the principles behind the passivhaus standard. The heat
losses of a passivhaus are reduced so much that it hardly needs any
heating at all. Passive heat sources like the sun, human occupants,
household appliances and the heat from the extract air cover almost all
the heating demand. Imagine your energy bills reduced to £50 per year!
John Butler, the owner of the straw bale extension featured in open EcoHomes (no. 10), will talk about using
low impact materials – straw bales, clay plaster, lime render,
thermafleece etc in buildings. Some insulating materials used currently
in houses use so much energy to manufacture that over their lifetimes
they barely save energy overall. John will show how traditional building
materials can have a lower impact.
If you would like to get involved in the school allotment and polytunnel, perhaps you might be willing to water during the holidays, then please contact us.
