The team are excited to announce that they are now able to run the Certified Passivhaus Tradesperson courses. As one of three providers in the UK we believe that the recent sharp rise in Passivhaus design will lead naturally to the need for greater on-site knowledge and awareness of good practice in construction methods.
Passivhaus is a rigorous energy standard that benefits building occupants with huge reductions in energy consumption in addition to an extremely high level of indoor comfort. To achieve it however requires nothing more than very good detailed design and thorough good-practice through the construction process. This entails awareness of interdependencies of different components and also an ability to assess deviations from the planned work that might arise on site that could adversely affect the building performance.
Whilst predominantly a course aimed at trades people, a wider audience could benefit attendance, as there is a need for contextual knowledge and understanding throughout the industry. This qualification demonstrates competence and commitment to improving building standards by both individuals and organisations.
