If you’re thinking of renovating your home and would like to find out how to do it in an environmentally sensitive way, you’ll be please to hear that we’ve just added another Eco Refurbishment short course to our calendar.

Running from 3rd to 6th November and taught by expert tutor Nick Parsons, the practical hands-on week helps you explore energy efficiency, renewable energy, water re-use and conservation, healthy buildings and hazardous building materials.

Topics covered include solid wall insulation, insulating materials from the commonly available to the cutting edge, understanding the heat loss of buildings, renewable energy options and sustainable water systems taught through specialist tours of the systems in use at CAT.

Practical sessions include roof insulation, water conservation and compost toilets, and there’s the chance for specialist consultation and advice on your own eco-refurbishment project.
