RETROFIT. THE RIGHT WAY.
This introductory course combines practical, hands-on learning with the theory which supports it. It provides an overview of the issues surrounding the retrofit of traditionally constructed buildings, and offers best practice solutions.
Participants will get hands-on experience of a wide range of retrofit techniques and appropriate materials for the retrofit of these buildings. They will gain an understanding of how to approach retrofit projects in buildings of architectural significance.
The learning from this course can be used to kick start a career in the retrofit industry, or to develop the skills and understanding of those already working in retrofit to enable them to apply their work to the traditionally constructed built environment.
