Event Description

The Green Register, in partnership with Pollard Thomas Edwards architects, is pleased to announce a brand new, flexible route to Green Register membership through a series of bite size training sessions designed to give concise training at a time to suit busy working professionals. Delegates can choose from a wide range of topics and can attend any number of sessions - the more you attend the closer you get to membership!

In this session Mark Saich of Green Building Solutions looks at Part L - New Dwellings...

This session takes a critical exploration through the current and proposed approved document L1A (new dwellings) and associated guidance to look at what is required to achieve compliance with the building regulations and how to design and build low energy, healthy, fully compliant homes fit for the 21st century. Mark will highlight solutions and pitfalls through worked examples/case studies.

Throughout the session, Mark will emphasise the sustainable aspects of the Regulations and standards and will also question whether the current tools and guidance can truly deliver energy efficient and healthy homes.

What did our delegates say about Mark’s previous training sessions?
"Exactly the right balance of technical content and clear presentation"

"Really good pace and well presented, kept our attention all day!"

"Really excellent & seamless, expansive knowledge”
