Publication : A Very Passive Passivhaus Archive; Performance Through Radical Simplicity
Speaker: Nick Grant
The first Passivhaus (sic) archive in the UK draws considerable inspiration from the passive (sic) approach to archive and museum storage developed by Tim Padfield and colleagues in Denmark. Performance has exceeded expectations suggesting considerable simplification would be possible in future.
Nick Grant is a freelance building consultant with a lifelong passion for doing more with less. He has no professional qualifications having dropped out of two universities in the 1980s to follow his interests. Whilst thankful for a basic grounding in engineering, he is mostly self-taught. His interest in closing the performance gap led him to his first Passive House conference in 2007. Nick is a practical engineer, tinkerer and self-builder with a keen interest in theory as a useful tool. He is known for questioning everything, including the need to question everything. Nick will try and give a fresh take on his usual themes.
