The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products

Healthy Retrofit

13th February 2013

We packed out Cullinan Studios for a lively evening of presenations and debate. Johnny Winter gave us an overview of their recent office refurbishment to BREEAM excellent. They used Warmcel on the inside to insulate the canal elevation and polystyrene on the outside of the elevation facing the road. Some 5 months after occupation they are still struggling to operate the BMS and are still snagging. There was much discussion on how this might be avoided. Neil May, ASBP and NBT gave us a talk on how sustainable products help with moisture control - please see his presentation on the Resources section of our website. Richard Griffiths gave us his take on the Green Deal and reminded us that every home is different. Our thanks to Cullinan Studios for hosting and to the speakers.
