Training Workshop on High Performance Buildings

21 - 22 November 2019

Yerevan, Armenia

UNECE has launched the high performance buildings initiative to deploy its Framework Guidelines for Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings with the aim of accelerating the transformation of the world’s building stock.  The initiative targets 4 stakeholder communities: 1) architects, building contractors, and engineers who work on building envelopes – getting the materials and design right and then ensuring perfect construction techniques; 2) systems professionals deliver heating, ventilation, and air conditioning as well as plug-in loads; 3) energy suppliers meet the systems’ needs; and 4) Information and communications technology connects a building to its built environment.

The two-day programme will train experts in the first stakeholder community on getting the building envelope right, including building design, building materials, and construction techniques. The programme will include hands-on, interactive demonstration of proper methods and approaches for insulation, thermal bridges, in-door air quality, and heat recovery.  The programme will demonstrate the connection to the other three pillars of high performance buildings and the imperative of getting the envelope right first.  The programme also will describe the criteria for establishing centres of excellence for deploying and disseminating the framework guidelines to encourage establishment of such training centres throughout the region.
