LAW AS OF THE 1st OF NOVEMBER 2019
A one-day conference
Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
Date: 5th March 2020
NZEB is the energy performance standard required under the European Union Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD). Under this Directive new public buildings are required to meet this standard as of 2018, while it is required that all new buildings meet this standard by 31st December 2020.
This Directive also provides for the deep retrofitting of existing buildings to NZEB standards from 2020 onwards.
Achieving NZEB and what is outlined in the Directive requires a culture change within all levels of the Building Industry.
This conference will provide a full overview of what is needed by 2020 and the requirements for Building Professionals, Government, Local Authorities and those managing buildings, it is a must attend event for all involved.
This event will be of real interest to anyone involved in the building & design sector including, architects, engineers, contractors, designers, suppliers, manufacturers, facility managers, property managers, local authorities, government departments, semi-state agencies, air tightness specialists, building control system and universities.
