Thursday 20th January – 7pm to 8pm.
This event must be booked in advance.
Join our highly-experienced expert panel for our special, online event, as we discuss two of the key topics affecting self builders in 2022; Materials & Energy.
Materials: We’ll discuss the availability and rising costs of materials in the UK and what budget contingency is appropriate for a self-builder in 2022
Energy: Will we see rising costs continue and how can self builders mitigate against this.
