netMAGmedia launches new construction industry podcast

netMAGmedia, which publishes a range of titles for the construction sector, presents the Building Insights podcast, which speaks to key voices from across the industry. Engaging with thought leaders from the worlds of design, construction, development, self-build and social housing management, Building Insights will provide an array of enlightening and unique viewpoints from a wide range of experts.

In the first episode of Building Insights, James Parker, editor of Architects’ Datafile Magazine, interviews Sarah Lewis, architect and research and policy director at the Passivhaus Trust.

Passivhaus is being hailed as the UK construction industry’s best hope for achieving zero carbon in 2050. Sarah Lewis is a key advocate of the low-energy building design approach, having spread the word far and wide via her work at the UK’s main body promoting the method – the Passivhaus Trust. Takeup is still relatively low in the UK, however, as ADF magazine’s recent reader survey and White Paper confirmed.

In a revealing and in-depth conversation, Sarah gave some candid insights into the likely reasons, but also put the positive case for Passivhaus going forward.
