Passivhaus Contractor Training - Bristol
Our Contractor Training comprises a 2-day course, which balances theory with practical, hands-on learning. There is an optional extra revision session and Tradesperson exam if you would like to gain this internationally-recognised qualification.
Led by UK experts, the course is aimed at anyone working on a low-energy or Passivhaus project, including builders, site managers, design managers and clients.
Do this course if you want to learn the skills to achieve Passivhaus standards on site and (optionally) take the exam to gain the Certified Passivhaus Tradesperson qualification.
A unique 2-day course looking at the practical side of low energy buildings. Ideal for site managers, builders and clients involved in any level of construction. The course centres on core Passivhaus (fabric-first) building strategies that are suitable for both new build and renovation projects, and is taught through a mix of theory and hands–on practical sessions.
This is one of the only courses in the UK that covers all the essential aspects of low-energy construction, including what it means practically when implemented on site. Our training provides knowledge & expertise in key aspects of fabric-first construction for both new build and retrofit.
You can take the first 2 days as a stand-alone module, or if you would like to gain accreditation, you can go on to complete the revision session and exam.
The course covers the following areas:
- Energy standards and Passivhaus principles
- Fundamental aspects for achieving Passivhaus, including insulation, high-performance glazing, airtightness, thermal bridging and ventilation
- How to ensure quality is delivered on site
Hands-on sessions are site specific and will typically include the following:
- Insulation – looking at insulation types, installing insulation (wood fibre) to avoid thermal bypass
- Airtightness – installing membranes to different substrates with a variety of tapes & adhesives
- Blower door test – understanding what to look for when a building is tested
- Practical calculations & exercises on airtightness and thermal bridging
