Sustainable Construction Awareness

This course will look at sustainable materials and practices that can help to construct homes with very high levels of energy efficiency. This will include a fabric first approach to construction, with an emphasis on sustainable building materials and insulation. It will also introduce the concept of low air permeability, and systems to provide low carbon heating and excellent indoor air quality. We will use the Eco Room, a recent extension to the sustainable construction hub, to showcase the technologies discussed during the training.
