Advantage Austria to host passive house CPD event in Edinburgh on 2 October
Advantage Austria is to host a CPD-oriented presentation and networking event on passive house and low carbon building in Edinburgh on 2 October.
Following the success of a similar event in London in June, the next event will take place Edinburgh’s Napier University on 2 October. Speakers will once again include Conor Ryan from window manufacturer Optiwin, Stuart Prause from airtight and wind-tightness solutions manufacturer Isocell, and Alan Haugh from external insulation system and render supplier Baumit.
Also presenting will be the award winning Scottish architect Kirsty Maguire, who recently scooped a UK Passivhaus Award for best bespoke project for her passive farmhouse in Ayrshire, featuring Optiwin windows.
With the continuing growth in interest in low energy building in the UK, as well as a stricter regulatory framework, there is a need to further develop the supply chain for low energy building technology. According to Peter Franklin at Advantage Austria in London: “For Austrian companies who have long experience in developing low carbon technology in central European markets, the main issue in the UK market is finding the right supply partners. We urge anyone in the UK supply chain interested in partnering with Austrian technology companies to contact us.”
Conor Ryan commented: “We are delighted to be teaming up again with Advantage Austria to offer this CPD oriented seminar in Scotland. There was a very positive resonance from the event in London and we are pleased to be able to help promote low energy building in Scotland.”
