Dr Sarah Price
NEW Technical Author for PAS 2035
Head of Building Physics & Consultancy, Enhabit
MSci, CEPH, AECB CLRetrofit, RICs Construction Project Management.
Sarah is a building physicist, Passivhaus consultant and project manager with over a decade of experience in the construction industry. Sarah sits on the AECB board of trustees as well as serving as an AECB Expert Advisor. Sarah has been integral to the AECB Building Standard and the CarbonLite course.
Sarah specialises in minimising energy use in buildings in the building fabric and building services, and ensuring quality in both design and construction. She teaches building physics for the Retrofit Coordinator and has edited the new Retrofit Coordination and Risk Management level 5 course funded by the CITB. She is also an active member of the UKCMB Moisture in Existing Building working group.
Only when buildings are constructed as designed, can they be truly sustainable. The key to achieving this is by bringing low energy design and construction processes such as AECB Building Standard, Passivhaus and the CarbonLite Retrofit Course to the general construction market. These standards don’t have to be exclusive to specialist, high-end developments, but have some fundamental qualities that should be applied to all projects.
