Askew Cavanna Project

Backwell Eco Homes

Built on a plot formerly occupied by a large unused warehouse, this low-energy, low-impact eco-home takes full advantage of its magnificent setting within the North Somerset Countryside. The house was recently completed as a self-build project by husband & wife team for their young family, who brought the plot with planning permission obtained by Askew Cavanna.

M Reynolds RIBA Case Study

"The Green Register has been a source of information, support and inspiration for our practice since I took Lucy Pedler's 2-day Sustainable Building and Services course and joined TGR in 2010. Over the years I have attended numerous innovative site visits, researched the materials and contacts made, and attended informative seminars, most recently on PAS 2030. All this has been fundamental to the development of our practice specialty in low-carbon design, as well as the expansion of interest in eco-retrofit in Cambridgeshire, and now nationally through webinars." - Margaret Reynolds

If you’re reading this thinking “that’s me” then you are right to be proud and we offer you a huge THANK YOU!

CPD points & Online Training Costs

Hi all

Just to update you on a few changes you may notice on our website and with event pricing.

CPD Points

You will notice each event now has a "TGR CPD points" stamp.  Most of these will be green stamps, which are points for all of our attendees and members, to show how many TGR (Green Register) CPD points this course is worth.  Your internal user record with us will also total how many CPD points you have accrued.

Some events may also have purple Futureproof CPD points stamp; this is relevant to our Futureproof FAB builders only.

Covid-19 / TGR Upcoming Events

The Green Register, in conjunction with partners and host venues, is actively monitoring novel coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from Public Health England and the World Health Organization (WHO) and responding based on the best advice of medical professionals and public health authorities.

We recognise that with the present situation, many people will be unable to travel and attend events in the next few months.
