Sustainable Homes and BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment Courses

We run public and inhouse Code and BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment courses around the UK

The public courses are ideal for one delegate or a small number of delegates from a company - there is great value in the interactive sessions, learning from each others questions and examples, as well as the networking.

The inhouse courses are most suitable if you have more than say 8 delegates or if you would like to base the course on a live project you are working on. It can be very effective to arrange an inhouse course and invite e.g. your associates, members of a project team, sub-contractors and even open it up to friendly external companies you work with. 

Examples of our courses include:

Code or BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment Overview Courses

We cover all the key aspects of the Code for sustainable homes in a one day course. Full of practical examples, jokes about what went wrong and clear guidance on how you can avoid making the common mistakes!

We run 1 hour, 2 hour and 3 hour general briefings which enable you to have a basic level of understanding of the Code or BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment. These can be run as a breakfast or lunch time briefing or at anytime during the day or evening.

Code Category workshops

These are 1 hour, 2 hour and 3 hour workshops, designed to cover specific Code or BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment categories. We run workshops on all 9 categories of the Code and all categories in BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment, including:

Some of our clients have chosen to run 2 or 3 of these workshops in a session to cover the areas of most interest.
