Presented by John Maitland, director of Energy Architecture, this interactive seminar will examine the principles of energy efficiency in relevant climates, including a range of project case studies and some results from post occupancy studies, reviews of local climate relevance, material selections and use of technological fixes.

Maitland will explore the relationship between efficiency and the star ratings and also relate a building to the human body, how their energy functions are similar, and discuss the impact of human behaviour.

The seminar runs 9 am – 11 am. Visit the Australian Institute of Architects website for further information and to book your place.
