Retrofit Fundamentals for Construction Professionals

This course gives construction professionals a starting point for getting into retrofit, the future of the building industry. Run by experienced retrofit contractors and People Powered Retrofit experts, the course will help you to:

  • understand the fundamental principles of eco-retrofit works,
  • build on your existing construction knowledge and skills,
  • get up to date with the latest green building techniques, products, and regulations,
  • find new business opportunities in retrofit.

You'll learn about:

  • Retrofit drivers and approaches
  • Air-tightness and ventilation
  • Fabric heat-loss and insulation
  • Thermal bridging and thermal by-pass

The course is available as a 2-day in person training course, or as a 4-part online course delivered as live webinars or on-demand sessions.

The course was a huge awakening for me. It's made me want to change almost every aspect of my work as a general labourer, and within weeks lead me down an amazing rabbit hole of amazing techniques, materials and systems already in use UK wide, that I knew absolutely nothing about.
