Thermally upgrading traditional buildings can be difficult and costly.  Where planning restrictions apply and insulation refurbishment can only be carried out internally, a full understanding of the construction is required before materials should be applied.  Ecological Building Systems have been supplying natural, diffusion open building materials for over 15 years, in this session, we will introduce you to the things to consider when retrofitting walls and roofs and look at solutions and best practice to achieve, durable, sustainable, low-energy buildings to improve their performance but keep their character.  Content will primarily cover internal solid wall insulation, and materials.  

This event is aimed at home owners looking to thermally improve their property and architects and builders.
The event is free of charge.  Numbers are limited to 15.  The event will be held at Ecological’s premises.
