Green Register & AECB launch bite-size passive house training
Although full passive house training is regarded as the best way to gain an in-depth understanding of all aspects of passive house design, some construction professionals may not have the time or resources to be able to attend the typical two week passive house course.

The launch of a series of bite-size halfday technical sessions aims to offer an introduction to the passive house standard, and give an insight into all the main principles of what makes a good low energy, comfortable building based on the passive house standard.
The Green Register and AECB CarbonLite are working together to provide four halfday sessions in Bristol in November. AECB CarbonLite already collaborated with architects Pollard Thomas Edwards to host the sessions in London in September.
All trainers are experts who have successfully designed and built passive buildings in the UK, including: Bill Butcher, Alan Clarke, Sally Godber, Nick Grant, Eric Parks, Marine Sanchez and Mark Siddall, and passive house certifiers Will South, Mike Roe and Peter Warm, as well as passive house designers Tom Dollard and Lucy Pedler.
The four dates for Bristol are: 9 November — passive house fundamentals with Peter Warm; 16 November — construction detailing with Bill Butcher; 23 November — building services with Alan Clarke; 30 November — project workshop and crit session with Nick Grant & Lucy Pedler.
