This training session is primarily open to builders / contractors who want to become Futureproof Associate Builders, going on to provide on-site training to other builders, but there are a limited number of places available for other professionals. Book now to secure your place!

This session, part of our Futureproof series for builders / contractors, is designed to outline the basic principles of sustainable water use in building projects, with expert trainer Cath Hassell of ech2o consultants ltd.

About the session

To ensure sustainability for our buildings in water use, we need to consider supply of water to buildings, how we heat that water, treatment of waste water and the rainwater falling on our buildings.

This training session will introduce builders to the core solutions based on building type, the available solutions currently on the market, the ease of installation in both new build and retrofit situations, implications for the remainder of the build process and maintenance requirements.

Builders will increase their core knowledge and be better placed to advise customers.
