Building Performance: Keeping your home warm and dry
‘Traditional’ houses were designed in a time where energy was hugely expensive, and they therefore incorporated many clever tricks to make them comfortable in the absence of gas and electricity on tap. Over time these once-efficient buildings changed in many ways: original elements deteriorated and were abandoned; fashions came and went; the knowledge of building performance all but disappeared; and the ‘services’ such as plumbing, heating and lighting were introduced willy-nilly. Alas, many changes have had unintended consequences, as is often all too clear to owners of listed properties. Join us to hear lots of interesting details about how traditional construction was originally intended to work, how traditional features can be reintroduced to improve comfort, and how modern services can be introduced with risk. You will never look at your house in the same way again!

By Dr Robyn Pender, Senior Architectural Advisor at Historic England
