Fire regulations and their possible undesired impact on the energy performance of low-energy and passive architecture
-
Safety and disabled access regulations and their possible undesired impact on the energy performance and cost efectiveness of low-energy and passive architecture as a result
-
Highly insulated timber frame buildings and water ingress with very complex shapes. Compare New Zealand (BRANZ), Australia, Canada, etc where the equivalents of National House Building Guarantee Schemes went bankrupt after thousands of defect buildings.
-
Water ingress problems in highly insulated buildings using rendered external insulation
-
Clean stones under buildings to prevent moisture rise and build up of radon gas versus traditionally used unwashed stones, for example in Irish road construction.
-
Seasonal store of solar thermal using phase-change material as opposed to water. Cost implications and resources used?
-
Analysis of embedded energy in 'super' passive houses compared to passive specification
