Skule Lunch & Learn Presents: The Future of High-Rise Housing: Climate Change Mitigation and Adaption in Existing Residential Towers
May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
High-rise residential buildings are the fastest-growing form of housing in urban regions globally. These buildings already contribute significantly to carbon emissions globally, and they face serious performance challenges with our dramatically changing climate. From transmission of airborne containments to uneven ventilation and summertime overheating, various performance issues continue to plague this building type.
Join us on May 11th as Professor Marianne Touchie explores these numerous performance issues associated with contemporary residential buildings, the new challenges anticipated in the future as our climate warms, and some novel approaches to reduce energy consumption and associated carbon emissions.
