A significant proportion of homes in Wales owned by Local Authorities and Housing Associations are classed as traditional. Addressing energy efficiency is fast becoming one of the most pressing issues for older, traditionally-constructed buildings. Upgrading traditional building fabric is notoriously complex, particularly where planning restrictions apply, and a holistic understanding of buildings, upgrade measures and occupant behaviour is required to ensure compatibility and appropriateness and to manage technical risks.

Woodknowledge Wales is partnering with The Green Register to offer a 50% discount for organisations and business based in Wales to attend a series of retrofit workshops run by retrofit expert Nicholas Heath.

This technical training course covers emerging research, best practice and case studies in the field of upgrading traditional and historic buildings:
How do we protect our traditional buildings but make them fit for the future?
What are the risks for small- and large-scale retrofit projects?
How can unintended consequences be addressed when upgrading solid-walled buildings?
The Whole Building Approach to retrofit

The course is delivered across two half-days:

23rd Feb 09.30-13.00
2nd March 09.30-13.00


Wales based participants can benefit from a 50% discount on the course. Use code WKW21. Please note: Only residents with a verified postcode in Wales are eligible to benefit from this offer.
