Presentation: Experiences of Sustainable House Days, from Past to Present

In the lead up to Sustainable House Day, we will re-visit some of the previous sustainable open house days and highlight the important features of these days, from the beginning of the Tasmanian ANZSES group to the present local Renew/ATA group.

This presentation will also illustrate a house at Geilston Bay, which can be visited on Sustainable House Day on September 15, 2019, designed by Detlev Geard, constructed by Blue Gum builders.

Speaker: Detlev Geard has been an architect practising in Hobart since 1986, specializing in solar architecture and the German passive house specification. He is also involved in the analysis of thermal performance of constructed houses, firstly providing thermal simulations and comparing thermal simulation with actual measured data, mostly temperatures and humidity. In 2011 he completed a PhD in Architecture comparing simulated data with measured data of 3 houses in Kingston, Tasmania for the period of 3 years. He is also involved in research projects on thermal performance of buildings for the University of Tasmania, School of Architecture in Launceston and lectures part time for the first and third year students.

We hope to see you at the meeting. All welcome.
