AECB Carbonlite Passivhaus Bitesize Training

Although the full Passivhaus training is a fantastic way to gain an in depth understanding of all aspects of Passivhaus design, some construction professionals may not have the time or resources to be able to attend the typical Passivhaus two week course.

Each of the four sessions will be run by experts in the field who are actually successfully designing / building Passivhaus in UK. Amongst others, Bill Butcher, Alan Clarke, Sally Godber, Nick Grant, Eric Parks, Marine Sanchez, Mark Siddall; and Passivhaus Certifiers Will South, Mike Roe and Peter Warm. Assisted by Passivhaus Designers Tom Dollard and Lucy Pedler.
