Green Register Bite Size Session - The Future of Windows

Bite-Size Session: The Future of Windows - a sustainable approach to acoustic design - Bristol

Find out how to take a green, forward thinking approach to all aspects of building acoustics including window design - this talk takes place on May 12th in Bristol and has been commissioned by the Green Register. 
In this bite size session, Ze Nunes, founder of Bristol based MACH Acoustics will present some lessons learned from lecturing & studying at the University of Bath (MSc in Sustainable Architecture and Phd “In the Visualisation of Sound”). Ze has recently published two hugely significant books 'Sustainable Acoustics' and 'The Future of Windows'. Signed copies of both books will be available subject to printing dates being achieved.
Ze will demonstrate how to take a green, forward thinking approach to all aspects of building acoustics including window design. Best practice, the latest data, as well as useful ‘sustainable rules of thumb‘ are included in this presentation as well as an introduction into MACH Acoustics’ Web Based Design Tools, showing how best to position a building on site, how to minimise levels of embodied energy and select partitions between rooms. 
Other topics covered include:
·         The importance and ease of Noise Mapping
·         How best to select and design vented facades
·         Overcoming the clashes between acoustics, cross ventilation and heat recovery Performance standards
·         Embodied energy and sound insulation
·         Sustainable ways to control reverberation
