“I will now think of the install as part of a whole package rather than a single measure. What impact it will have on a building and how it can be altered to better fit with other measures either present or potential.”
“The course gave me new insights into testing, monitoring and evaluation. This will have an immediate positive impact on how we collect data and how it will collate with other potential improvements.”
“The training is invaluable to anyone working, managing or specifying building projects – especially in energy retrofit.”
“As a result of the course I will now ensure handovers on site are thorough and all considerations and solutions are imposed in order to make a property as air tight as possible”
