IBPSA Australasia and the Australian Passive House Association are holding a seminar in Melbourne on May 31.
Guest speakers and presentations include:
Designing a high-speed train station in the south of France
Pablo Sepulveda, AECOM
Sepulveda will present on the key design challenges associated with designing a new high-speed train station in Montpelier, France. He will discuss how parametric studies in Grasshopper assisted with the design of the perforated fibre-reinforced concrete roof to minimise solar gains while preserving access to daylight. And he will talk about designing a thermal comfort system to keep indoor temperature below 26 C without air conditioning.
Applying Passive House design standards in non-standard ways
Nick Mulvany, Umow Lai
The Passive House design standard is seeing exponential growth within Australia for both residential and non-residential building types. The Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) is a meticulously designed Excel-based analysis tool to assess performance to the Passive House standard. Mulvany will discuss recent experiences in the application and use of the PHPP and supporting tools ‘DesignPH’ and THERM, as used in the design of high-end residential project.
The seminar is being held at:
Collins Square, Level 10, Tower Two
727 Collins Street
The doors will open at 5.30pm, and the presentations will commence from 6pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
