Green Register speakers Joseph Little and Beñat Arregi will be teaching alongside a building physicist at a new one semester, part-time CPD Diploma in Hygrothermal Assessment that is going to kick off in Dublin this September.
We believe this in-depth Diploma is the first of its kind in the UK, and will be of interest to Green Register members and colleagues. The multi-disciplinary re-skilling programme is aimed at architects, engineers, building surveyors and architectural technologists.
The Energy at Home Trade Support team have extended their offer of full funding for places at our Retrofitting Internal Wall Insulation seminar in Bristol until 11th September.
