Self-building is a major personal investment meaning that quality and whole-life performance are a real priority. Homeowners want to choose structural materials that ensure that their home is robust, secure and will last for many generations whilst maintaining the highest levels of energy efficiency. Masonry and concrete solutions can meet these demands and, as materials are sourced, manufactured and delivered locally, they are readily available all around the UK.
This event is for all those with an interest in the design and construction of homes, from a unique self-build home to small and medium-sized housing developments. Delegates will also receive best practice on design for energy efficiency, sustainability, basements, wall solutions and more.
The event is being held at the National Self-Build Centre in Swindon on Tuesday 13th August and is free to attend, with registration and refreshments commencing at 09:15.
Speakers include Christopher Stanley, Housing Manager of Modern Masonry, Kevin Dodds from The Basement Information Centre, and Elaine Toogood, Senior Architect at The Concrete Centre.
Topics will include:
- Ten top tips for energy efficient housing design
- Innovations and modern methods of housing
- Planning a basement for housing
- Solid reasons for using concrete and masonry
