14.45- 15.45 Retro-fitting of heritage buildings

Heritage buildings are falling behind on many sustainability criteria such as energy performance. It is likely to become increasingly unacceptable to inhabit these poorly performing buildings, however they remain cultural and historical important. This session will explore the challenges in improving building performance in heritage buildings - energy efficiency, embodied carbon, resilience against climate change and flexibility in functionality. It will also explore innovations in design, construction processes and specification of materials that are being incorporated in heritage buildings in England and Italy through a panel discussion with leading experts. What are the new approaches being pioneered on Italian and London heritage buildings, what is working, what do we still need to do better?
