BOOK


Making our buildings work to achieve global environmental ambitions


EnerPHit, pioneered by the Passive Haus Institute, is the gold standard of performance for existing buildings. James Traynor’s practical guide to EnerPHit, published by RIBA, provides architects and designers the tools to retrofit our existing buildings to demonstrate what is possible and help the UK meet its crucial carbon reduction commitments. RIBA commented: “To meet the


ambitious target of reaching carbon zero by 2050, or much earlier, building


owners across the UK will be required to upgrade their buildings to adhere to increasingly stringent energy performance requirements. “So far, there has been no clear


advice from UK Government on how these requirements can be achieved, but the EnerPHit standard offers a very clear methodology. “Nearly 20 per cent of UK carbon


emissions are attributed to the heating and cooling of buildings. By tackling inefficient stock, we can address both


AWARDS


Cambridge Mosque comes out on top at Structural Timber Awards


With 16 categories, nearly 250 entrants and over 70 companies shortlisted, the judges for this year’s Structural Timber Awards reportedly had an “onerous job” in selecting the winners, said the organisers. The big winner on the night was Cambridge Central Mosque, by a team consisting of timber engineers Blumer-Lehmann AG, contractor Gilbert Ash and Marks Barfield Architects, which scooped the Winner of Winners award. With a design inspired by both Islamic and English religious architectural traditions, the building features innovative glulam timber forms comprising a ‘forest’ of tree-like columns. One of the judges described the project as “a remarkable building that pushes the boundaries of glulam design, manufacture and assembly into wholly new areas that suggest huge potential for new building forms to be developed using laminated timber construction methods and products. Rarely do buildings as innovative as this come along and the achievement would certainly justify the accolade of project of the year.” The head of the judging panel and chief executive of the Structural Timber Association, Andrew Carpenter commented on the awards: “The depth of expertise across all categories was impressive and the


exceptional number of entries clearly demonstrates the upturn in the industry. The Structural Timber Awards is a high-point in the construction industry calendar and it is truly inspiring to see so much activity in the sector.” The ceremony was held in October at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham.


carbon emissions and fuel poverty, while providing improved thermal comfort and a healthier environment” By equipping the reader with key


information on EnerPHit, the book aims to give both architects and policymakers a “practical understanding of the most effective benchmark for building performance.” Including a range of case studies, it enables architects to “understand how to achieve successful outcomes that are tailored to suit available budgets and programmes.” The publishers conclude: “At a crucial


time for the planet, its environment and us, architects and designers have an unprecedented opportunity to make vital changes to the way we live, to be able to successfully meet the climate change challenges facing us.”
