Have you heard about our brand new one day course? Our Renovation Masterclass is delivered by David Hilton, NSBRC Helpdesk Expert. David is an authority in sustainable building and energy efficiency, with extensive knowledge in building fabrics and heating systems and has completed extensive renovations to his own family home.
