Following a successful World Green Building Week series of seminars and demonstrations in September, Ecological Building Systems has announced a series of new training courses and seminars. “This is timely with the latest revision of the building regulations, increased activity in the construction sector and a demand for higher levels of thermal performance in buildings,” said Niall Crosson, the company’s technical engineer and certified passive house consultant.
The courses include a new Pro Clima ‘Intelligent Airtight Systems’ training programme which has a particular focus on practically delivering airtightness on site. This practical course will be delivered by one of Ecological Building System’s technical experts, Peter Smith, in combination with certified passive house tradesperson Roman Szypura of Clioma House. Roman is very well known in the world of passive house and has many years’ experience delivering some of the most airtight and lowest energy houses in Ireland and the UK.
Ecological Building Systems will also once again be delivering its highly commended Better Building, Putting the Fabric First course. This is split into morning theoretical and afternoon practical sessions. The morning building physics section is delivered by Niall Crosson. The practical afternoon session is again delivered by Roman Szypura. The course focuses on meeting the thermal requirements of the building regulations, key areas to consider when retrofitting existing buildings, an introduction to passive house principles, and an overview of airtightness and vapour control. This course will focus on both retrofits and new builds.
The courses will be held at the company’s state-of-the-art Centre of Knowledge in Athboy, Co Meath. The courses are also targeted at UK delegates, and the company can organise transport to and from Dublin Airport. Given the company’s vast experience using award winning products on pioneering low energy projects since the year 2000, Ecological Building Systems is in a unique position to impart its knowledge to both building professionals and the public.
