Presentation: As a part of the celebration of World Environment Day 2018, Dr Mark Dewsbury will speak on the topic "Is energy efficient housing a health hazard?". As we journey from zero to ten star ratings, this presentation will discuss aspects of built fabric, vapour permeability and ventilation as they relate to benefits and potential health hazards.

Speaker Bio: Dr Dewsbury has been involved in the sustainable design of commercial and residential buildings in the public and private sectors for more than 20 years. His research activities have included contract research for Forest and Wood Products Australia, CSIRO, Department of Industry, Federal Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, CSR Building Materials, Aurora Energy, and a broad range of industry and government partners. His research focuses on methods of building to improve the construction and thermal performance of Australian housing. This incorporates empirical validation, testing and calibration input for the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme, CHENATH and AccuRate building simulation programs. Recently, Mark has been conducting desktop and empirical studies on the use of mass-timber products as thermal mass and condensation risks in contemporary building systems in Australian cool and temperate climates.

We hope to see you at the meeting.
