The latest SEDA Guide: SUSTAINABLE RENOVATION
Are you involved in the renovation of existing buildings? This Design Guide is primarily aimed at the domestic retrofit sector - from policy makers and development managers in housing organisations, to architects, builders, surveyors and home owners. It is also essential for those interested in upgrading non-domestic buildings.

The Scottish Government estimates that £10 - 12 billion is to be spent improving the energy performance of Scottish homes in response to the Climate Emergency and to meet fuel poverty objectives. The Pebble Trust, supported by SEDA, has seized on this timing to commission a guide to help ensure that this effort is as effective, and sustainable as possible.

The work is based heavily on Building Performance Evaluation studies in which investigators study the actual performance of buildings once built, rather than the calculated predictions routinely used, and the real experience of people within these buildings!

We ask a contribution from people attending to defray refreshment costs.
Matriculated students free - bring your ID.
Book now and come in good time for grub and drink.
