CPD Energy efficient building design
Sustainable Architecture: Residential
CPD Energy efficient building design

Sustainability can’t be like some sort of a moral sacrifice or political dilemma or a philanthropical cause. It has to be a design challenge.

This five-part CPD seminar series will focus on the design and construction of sustainable residential architecture. It will equip attendees with the metrics and the technical, political and communication skills to complement your design skills. Seminars can be experienced individually or as a series.
