A carbon accounting module stresses the need for environmental data to be calculated for each project, while a fabric-first module will focus on design decisions that you can use to reduce energy consumption. The role of sustainable insulation materials, including homegrown alternatives, and mass timber solutions will also form a core part of the course.
Training includes a blend of online learning and live demonstrations at BE-ST’s Innovation Factory in Hamilton – home to the UK’s only commercial-scale vacuum press for manufacturing cross-laminated and glue-laminated timber components, and a Pilot Insulation Line for trialling new insulation materials.
All training is funded and so completely free to you.
This will be a scalable model that will create a structure for exploring opportunities and ways to reach net zero through building materials, products, and component parts.
This entry-level training is primarily aimed to construction contractors looking to begin and improve their knowledge on these key areas.
Morning sessions begin at 9am or 10am depending on the day chosen, afternoon sessions begin at 12:30pm. All last approximately three hours.
