Sustainable Water Use in Retrofits - Online
This half-day training session 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 construction profesionals 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.
Construction professionals will increase their core knowledge and be better placed to advise clients.
Cath Hassell, director of ech2o consultants ltd and long time TGR core trainer has spent 12 years on site as a plumber and has been designing sustainable water solutions for the built environment since 1998.
Cath has a track record of very positive feedback from her TGR presentations over the past 18 years so be sure to book early as this session will sell out!
