Online Training: Retrofit Insulation Masterclass

Being able to identify problems and understand the implications of retrofit insulation defects is now critically important for any building surveyor. Poor design and delivery of retrofit insulation to solid-walled buildings has led to problems in both building fabric and occupant wellbeing.

With more and more homeowners, landlords and tenants looking to improve thermal performance of older buildings, our retrofit insulation masterclass is designed to ensure that you understand the retrofit process, can identify what work retrofitters have taken, the potential unintended consequences and how they should be remedied.

Open to both PCA members and non-members alike, this intensive online masterclass can be taken on its own or in conjunction with other courses in our moisture management suite. To find out more or to ask any questions, contact us on 01480 400 000 or contact us online.
