THIS SEMINAR IS FOR: householders planning an eco-refurbishment or retrofit project who already know the kinds of measures their home requires and are seeking to take forward works. Householders who have had an energy assessment carried and want to commission some of the recommended measures.

COURSE CONTENT
Together the seminars cover:

  • Considering objectives, priorities and getting the best result.
  • Looking at options for works and funding
  • Balancing time, cost and quality
  • Local Authority approvals, consents etc…
  • What ‘professionals’ are needed and selecting and appointment
  • Selecting and appointing builders (including contracts)
  • Examining common issues and avoiding them
  • Getting the most for the resources available
  • Exchanging ideas and energy with like-minded people – & sharing the pain!

WORKSHOP LEADS
Marianne Heaslip, architect at URBED and Bill Taylor, MD of Taylor Armitt Consulting

ATTENDEES
NB the course is for householders who are already aware of what improvements they require and are looking to take things to the next step, ie commission contractors etc. If you are unsure of what needs to be done to make your house energy efficient please commission a Carbon Co-op whole house assessment. Equally, these seminars are not for suppliers or contractors or professionals who offer services in retrofit design and delivery – householders are attending these seminars in order to receive impartial advice not sales pitches and we are happy to separately offer CPD services for professionals.

Past attendees say:
For anyone considering retrofitting your house to make it more carbon efficient and environmentally friendly, this is a brilliant workshop. I came away with far greater understanding of the field and inspired by what others are doing. The trainers brought the seminars to life with stories and pictures and also shared their extensive experience.”
