Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) together with the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC) organised a symposium entitled " Quality ventilation is the key to achieving low...
Aiming to inform Australian researchers and engineers on recent developments in the field of ventilation technologies, the workshop gave international experts visiting Australia the opportunity to...
19-20 March 2018, Workshop, Wellington (NZ) - Towards higher-performing buildings: The role of airtightness and ventilation
The objective of this AIVC workshop was to discuss and identify ways to improve the quality of our homes with respect to airtightness and ventilation, as well as discussing the impact suboptimal...
14-15 March 2017, Workshop, Brussels - Is ventilation the answer to indoor air quality control in buildings? Do we need performance-based approaches?
Indoor exposure to contaminants should be minimized to avoid adverse health and comfort effects. Experience shows that this qualitative statement is difficult to translate into measurable terms, such...
16-17 March 2015, Workshop, Lund –Voluntary and Regulatory Frameworks to Improve Quality and Compliance of ventilation and airtightness
Although ventilation and airtightness are covered in most countries by various regulations focussed on energy performance and/or indoor air quality, the effectiveness of these regulations is often...
18-19 March 2014, Workshop, Brussels - Quality of Methods for Measuring Ventilation and Air Infiltration in Buildings
There is a trend to perform more ventilation and air infiltration measurements in buildings, either to strengthen commissioning procedures or to learn from field data. This trend is stronger in...
18-19 April 2013, Workshop, Washington DC - Building and Ductwork Airtightness: Design, Implementation, Control and Durability: Feedback from Practice and Perspectives
Workshop Objectives: Bring to light newest developments on sealing techniques, durability, test methods and analyses, challenges and solutions in high‐rise buildings Foster...
The current development in building energy efficiency towards nearly zero energy buildings represents a number of new challenges to design and construction of buildings. One of the major new...
18-19 March 2013, Workshop, Brussels - Securing the quality of ventilation systems in residential buildings: status and perspectives
While it is generally accepted that a ventilation system in a building—whether natural, mechanical or hybrid—is needed to provide acceptable indoor air quality and prevent building...
28-29 March 2012, Workshop, Brussels - Achieving relevant and durable airtightness levels: status, options and progress needed
Adequate ventilation as well as good envelope and ductwork airtightness represent a specific challenge for new or renovated nearly zero-energy buildings. Alone, they can represent over 50% of a...
14-15 June 2010, Workshop, Brussels - Large scale national implementation plans for building airtightness assessment : a must for 2020!
It is expected that many countries will between 2015 and 2020 have regulations imposing requirements for new buildings which are near-zero energy targets. This has major consequences: Such...
The main purpose of this workshop was to present and discuss the evolutions in the national regulations related to summer comfort and cooling: In terms of standards for achieving good...
