Ecobuild 2014: Near-zero non-domestic buildings - the best approach
This session examines the imperatives to design and construct cost-effective, energy-efficient non-domestic buildings. Speakers considered the benefits of a fabric-first approach to design, and examines the role of technologies in creating buildings which are simple and cheap to run, as well as being near-zero carbon.
