Eco Workshops

We know a priority for many self builders is to design an energy efficient home. These free workshops will help you research the many options for building a high performance home, or one that utilises natural materials. We explore the pros and cons of different building methods, the importance of good design, and the merits of different heating, insulation and ventilation solutions and much more.  Attendees will enjoy masterclass talks, panel discussions, live demonstrations and guided tours.

Eco Workshop: Building Systems & Project Management - Saturday 12th June

This day will look at the particulars that are required when building a high performance property or one that utilises natural materials. It will also cover the role that the self builder plays in the construction process, whether it be self project managing, package managing or using sub contractors – addressing the relative merits and drawbacks of each route.

You will find out how to package all these things together to make sure that you end up with the home that delivers according to your original design brief, budget and future living expectations.

Lifting the lid on eco issues!
