Event Details

This is one in a series of courses in our- Retrofitting Buildings for Energy Efficiency Series. In brief, the topics covered during this day include: traditional vs modern construction; moisture movement and vapour permeability; and insulation types and their installation.

Description: Understanding the building fabric is key to upgrading it effectively. The day will consider what these differences are and how current best practice treats them.

Aims: The day aims to provide participants with an understanding of the differences between modern construction and older buildings, the fundamentals of the behaviour of moisture in the different building types and the options for thermal improvement.

Is this course for me? 

The course is at a Level 4, meaning that the content is similar in level to a module of a university bachelor’s degree. This is one in a series of courses on Retrofitting Buildings for Energy Efficiency, but it is a standalone course and you don’t have to have attended any of the others to benefit from this one.

Your course presenter is James Innerdale.

James has also been engaged to provide heritage skills training for the North of England Civic Trust, the Heritage Trust for the North West, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority and the IHBC. He provides training for homeowners, professionals and contractors.
