Passivhaus for Educational Buildings: Procurement Tutorials


Following the successful launch of the Passivhaus Educational Buildings campaign in 2020, this year, the Trust advances with Phase II, moving on from why adopt the Passivhaus Standard to how to deliver schools. In May 2021, we kick off with a series of online tutorials focusing on school procurement. 

From setting strong briefs to appointing the right team, these weekly procurement tutorials are for those interested in designing & delivering better schools. We are delighted to offer free attendance for school Building Clients & Local Government thanks to our generous sponsors Robertson Group & Hub East Central Scotland.


From local authorities delivering schools, through to academies and private schools, these tutorials are for all who are involved in the education sector, specifically clients.
