  • Adapting the city
  • Slide 2
  • Building & Infrastructure Dr Tim Whitley Associate Director, Arup
  • Slide 3
  • Sustainable Building Retrofit Adaptation and Mitigation
  • Slide 4
  • Climate Change Impacts Lack of resilience High energy bills Summer overheating Customer discomfort 9.0 6 O C 9.67 O C 10.1 O C
  • Slide 5
  • Adaptation vs Mitigation and Retrofit MitigationAdaptation Reduce energy useIncreased summer temperatures Reduce water useIncreased flood risk Lower carbon footprintMore extreme weather events Challenge Potential increased cooling to cope with increased summer temperatures vs reducing energy use
  • Slide 6
  • Bruntwood Adaptation and Mitigation Three packages 1.Behavioural 2.Fabric 3.Services Two categories 1.Suite related (impact on customers electricity bills) 2.Building related (impact on service charge energy costs)
  • Slide 7
  • Cost-benefit Analysis
  • Slide 8
  • Key Intervention examples Envelope and environmental system strategy High performance glazing Solar shading through glazing and blinds Insulation to roof and spandrel panels Expose soffits for passive/night time cooling Install high efficiency ventilation and conditioning systems Maximise daylight opportunities
