Event Description

NEW - RIBA Advanced CPD status

When this course is combined with our new 1-day Sustainable Building & Services Masterclasses, these 3 days of training form our new 3-day Sustainable Building & Services course which has been awarded RIBA Advanced CPD status - see below for more details.

Are you…

  • confused about Government sustainable construction legislation and how it will affect your company?
  • keen to learn how sustainability can help to meet your business priorities?
  • looking for independent, high quality training on sustainable construction practices?

Sustainable construction is no longer viewed as an ‘alternative’ method of building, and is increasingly being considered a fundamental approach to the way we design and construct our buildings. There is a great deal to learn and with new legislation being introduced at an ever-increasing pace, the challenge is to keep abreast of new developments and remain competitive.

The Green Register’s highly commended Sustainable Building and Services two-day course has been perfected over the past thirteen years to become one of the best ways to get up to speed with all the essential issues surrounding sustainable building practices. Completion of this two-day course enables you to apply for Green Register membership which has a host of benefits in itself, including substantial discounts on all TGR courses.

Day One – an overview
A comprehensive look at all aspects of sustainable construction, from Relevant Sustainable Construction Legislation including the Green Deal, Sustainable Water Use in the UK through to Low Carbon Technologies, allowing you to take away a greater understanding of what works and what is just eco-bling.

Day Two – in-depth sessions
The second day provides an ideal opportunity to learn about subjects that are relevant to your profession and skills, choosing four workshops from a range of topics. These 90 minute sessions are at the advanced level and topics range from Breathing Construction in Detail, Specifying Sustainable Timber and Rainwater/Greywater Systems offering something for every discipline.
