Retrofit/Traditional building

Energy Efficiency & Retrofit of Pre 1919 Traditional Buildings: 2 Day Course

Over one quarter of buildings in the UK are traditionally built and are often mistakenly treated as modern buildings resulting in unintended consequences – they require ‘responsible retrofit’. The Environment Study Centre has teamed up with the CITB’s National Construction College and specialist building consultancy Edwards Hart to develop this unique 2 day course that delivers a qualification in energy efficiency retrofit.

What will I learn

Upon successful completion participants will be awarded the SQA Level 3 Award for Energy Efficiency for Older & Traditional Buildings (QCF). This is a government approved qualification and has been developed to suit contractors and consultants, as well as clients.

The three SQA Level 3 Award units that make up the Level 3 Award:

  • SQA code H6MK 69 Older and Traditional Buildings: Age, Nature and Characteristics
  • SQA unit code H6MM 69 Older and Traditional Buildings: Assessing Options for the Introduction of Energy Efficiency Measures
