Liz Male & Dr Peter Rickaby Talk PAS 2035
Liz Male, Founder of Liz Male Consulting, past chair of TrustMark, and former member of the government’s Construction Leadership Council has kindly shared her interview of Dr Peter Rickaby. Peter has over 30 years of experience as an energy and sustainability consultant in the building and housing industries and is widely respected as a leading expert in all aspects of domestic energy efficiency.
Peter is Chair of the BSI’s Retrofit Standards Task Group and lead technical author for PAS 2035 – the new BSI Publicly Available Specification for low energy domestic retrofit (the technical standard for specifying publicly funded energy efficiency improvements in homes). The Task Group is also working on several new standards, including PAS 2038 (non-domestic retrofit), retrofit assessment, thermal comfort, ventilation, energy advice and BPE. Bill Bordass of the Usable Buildings Trust (https://www.usablebuildings.co.uk/) is the AECB representative on the new PAS 2038 working group.
Peter is now working with the UKCMB (UK Centre for Moisture in Buildings) based out of UCL (http://www.ukcmb.org/). Like the AECB, Peter is a firm supporter of effective collaboration and is committed to deepening the existing working relationship between the AECB and the UKCMB.
In this interview Peter and Liz discuss PAS 2035 – as the Industry prepares to adopt the new standard.
