If you have a question about this talk, please contact Aaron Gillich.
Speaker: Roderic Bunn, Building Analyst, BSRIA
Roderic Bunn has 20 years of experience in the field of sustainability in the built environment. Roderic currently works as a BSRIA principal consultant, undertaking building performance evaluations with a specialist knowledge of school buildings. He is also a Building Performance Evaluator for the Technology Strategy Board. He is a Manager of the Soft Landings initiative, and convenor of the BSRIA Soft Landings User Group, as well as a regular lecturer on Soft Landings and post occupancy evaluation. He conducts energy surveys using CIBSE TM22 , and occupant surveys using the Building User Studies occupant survey system.
Abstract: Any attempt to mitigate carbon emissions in the existing building stock must maximise the potential for savings in operational energy use. It is critical to consider the role that behaviour, management, and control strategies can play when exploring retrofit options. Systems and technologies that rely on complex automation to achieve savings often fail because practice doesn’t mirror design theory. This seminar will focus on the often overlooked fundamentals of control system design and discuss the principles for delivering savings through simple and effective building control and behavioural strategies.
