Can we build Passivhaus in Steel? - Lunch 'n' Learn

In this training session, Allan Smith, Low Carbon Manager at Morrison Construction (Galliford Try), will demonstrate how, by using physical prototypes and a purpose-designed steel testing rig, they have been able to achieve this best practice operational energy standard.

Allan will also explain the options available to designers using steel to achieve embodied carbon benchmarks such as the Net Zero Public Sector Buildings Standard in Scotland. We’ll talk about how a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) mindset can help with optioneering processes and share case studies.


This session will help you to:

  • Understand the implications of steel frame construction on operational energy
  • Apply design techniques to minimise whole life carbon
  • Learn about pros and cons of different steel / panel systems
  • Understand how to enable greater standardisation through DfMA
  • See how MMC can deliver high quality architecture
