All engineering professionals make a commitment to maintaining their competency through ongoing CPD, in order to meet both current and future challenges within the low energy building industry.
The ‘Methods and applications to improve air and wind-tightness, thermal bridging’ CPD presentation focuses on the importance of airtightness and wind-tightness in both new and retrofit dwelling design, highlighting best practice techniques and high-performance building envelope solutions.
Given that modern building techniques are moving toward more airtight construction, the need to focus on indoor air quality is greater than ever. The ‘Ventilation solutions for energy-efficient buildings’ CPD presentation explains the benefits, from an energy efficiency and lifestyle perspective, of decentralised and centralised ventilation systems.
Planning a CPD
If you are eager to level up your skills and technical knowledge on the key issues, procedures, and application methods in the areas of airtightness, wind-tightness, and ventilation, these seminars can help you to thrive in the fast-paced environment of low carbon design and construction. They also offer an opportunity to explore completed projects, design guidance, and the latest building standards (Part L and Part F).
