Building for the Future Sustainable and Efficient Housing

This day school, organised by CPRW and chaired by Prof Gareth Wyn Jones, will look at how to ensure that new housing stock plays its part in reducing carbon footprint, sustaining the supply of building materials and keeping the population warm, happy and healthy!

The event takes place on Saturday November 23rd and will be in the 1st floor lecture theatre at Electric Mountain, Llanberis.

Speakers include architects with experience of building for the future and balancing the priorities of energy efficiency, materials sustainability, and cost.  The concepts of the Passivhaus and the ReFab House will be discussed alongside the need for imaginative design and affordability.  Carole-Anne Davies, Head of the Design Commission for Wales will discuss the Commission’s role in persuading large scale house builders to adopt these new approaches and some owners will describe their experience of living in such ‘perfect’ houses.

Cost per delegate: £20 (CPRW members) £30 (non-members including one year’s free membership of CPRW).

Please contact Frances Llewellyn f.m.lynch@btinternet.com to find out the starting time and to book so that the numbers for catering are known.  Payment can be on the door with cheques made out to CPRW Caernarfonshire.
