The NSBRC Guide to Renovation Projects

The NSBRC are pleased to present a one-day event for home renovators.

Our Renovation Course is delivered by NSBRC Helpdesk Expert David Hilton. David is an authority in sustainable building and energy efficiency, with extensive knowledge in building fabrics and heating systems.

The Course is classroom-based and discusses how you can effectively manage your project, the processes you will encounter and which trades you should use. David will also guide you through the NSBRC’s own fantastic Renovation House where you can watch the theory come to life.

Our Training Courses are designed to build your knowledge and confidence so that you are equipped to make informed decisions during your project.
