TU Dublin hosts 'Building Performance Symposium 22'

9 Mar, 2022

'Building Performance Symposium 22' celebrates serious upskilling by building design professionals and provides new research & insights.

TU Dublin is hosting Building Performance Symposium 22 on 11th May to celebrate five years of serious upskilling by building design professionals through the various parts of MSc in Building Performance (Energy Efficiency in Design). It is of direct relevance to (a) those considering upskilling in super-low energy building design skills and knowledge, (b) decision makers in architectural, engineering & surveying practices considering how their offices can upskill and (c) those who wish to hear about new research and learn about the transition from nearly zero energy building (NZEB) to zero carbon building design.

The event is sponsored with thanks to Ecological Building Systems and TU Dublin Hothouse. The event is free to attend but we encourage a donation of €10 for our selected charity, or €5 for students. Our selected charity is the The Irish Architects' Benevolent Society (IABS).
